About this item
Embrace on Brooklyn Bridge is a novel about alienation in its various forms and senses: the hero who doesn't belong; his second wife, torn between professional ambition and a desperation to give her husband the impression she belongs in his world; his son, with whom he has limited communication; his granddaughter, uncertain where she belongs; and his Egyptian friend, who discovers that neither his children nor his Cuban-American-Lebanese wife belong to his world. All these characters are linked by their relationship with the protagonist, who draws them together by inviting them to his granddaughter's birthday party, at which he intends to convey some sad news.
