Die Wiederentdeckung des größten Klassikers der amerikanischen Literatur – erstmalig seit 1929 in neuer Übersetzung. »Da ist ein Land der Lebenden und ein Land der Toten, und die Brücke zwischen ihnen ist die Liebe - das einzig Bleibende, der einzige Sinn.« Am 20. Juli 1714 stürzen in Peru fünf Menschen in den Tod, als eine von den Indios erbaute Hängebrücke reißt. Ein Franziskanermönch, Zeuge dieser Katastrophe, beginnt den Lebensgeschichten der Toten nachzuforschen. War alles blinder Zufall oder höhere Fügung? Doch je mehr Berichte, Anekdoten und Erinnerungen er zusammenträgt, desto weniger kann er einen höheren Sinn erkennen in dem, was diese Menschen antrieb: die Liebe in ihren unterschiedlichsten Formen. Und vielleicht ist diese Liebe das Einzige, was bleibt.
