Sneak preview of Julie Orringer's first novel

Bridge This week over at FiveChapters.com - a website that usually posts a short story in five parts over five days - they're thinking bigger. This week's free offering is an excerpt from Julie Orringer's upcoming historical novel The Invisible Bridge, which is due out in May.

From the website:

"In this section, it's September 1937 as we meet Andras Levi, a young Jewish man from Hungary who is the fortunate recipient of a scholarship to study architecture in Paris. Only as he arrives in France, believing he will have a wonderful opportunity for study that would likely be closed to him at home, his funding is in trouble. (Andras is one of two brothers in the novel, part of a family dramatically affected by World War II.)"

Orringer's debut was the excellent short story collection How to Breathe Underwater (and if you haven't read it yet, what's stopping you?) She read a few years back at Miami Book Fair International.
