Evan S. Connell (1924-2013)

Books-to-Movie Suggestion: Evan S. Connell's "Mr. Bridge" and "Mrs. Bridge"/'"Mr. and Mrs. Bridge.

Evan S. Connell was never a "brand-name" author, and perhaps I don't want to know how often people react with blank looks on their faces when the Paul Newman and, even more so, Joanne Woodward are mentioned.


Acclaimed writer Evan S. Connell has died at 88.  (Huffington Post, 1/10/2013)

OK, I understand the realities of collection development and retention, but it's a shame that these two books aren't available for browsing in more LINKcat libraries.

I still browse for books.  Does anyone else?
