First published in 1912, “Alexander's Bridge” is American author Willa Cather's first novel. The story centres around Bartley Alexander, a famous engineer and bridge builder who is going through a mid-life crisis. Despite having a wife named Winifred, Bartley rekindles an old flame in London—an affair that Bartley's innate propriety and honour would make him regret. Willa Sibert Cather (1873–1947) was an American writer famous for her novels related to frontier life on the Great Plains. Other notable works by this author include: “O Pioneers!” (1913), “The Song of the Lark” (1915), and “My Ántonia” (1918). She won the Pulitzer Prize for her World War I novel “One of Ours" (1922). This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an excerpt from “Willa Cather - Written For The Borzoi, 1920” by H. L. Mencken.

Willa Cather

Willa Cather was born in Virginia in 1873 and moved to Nebraska, with its wide open plains and immigrant farming communities, at the age of nine.

This landscape would deeply affect her later writing. She attended university and became a journalist and teacher in Pittsburgh, and then a magazine editor in New York.

Her first major novel, O Pioneers!, appeared in 1913, and was followed by two more in her prairie trilogy: The Song of the Lark and My Antonia. She lived with the editor Edith Lewis for thirty-nine years until her death in 1947.
