His father conceived of the Brooklyn Bridge, but it was Washington Roebling who built what has become one of America’s most iconic structures—as much a part of New York as the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. The literary editor of the London Times brings us an elegantly written biography with a compelling narrative sweep that will introduce Washington Roebling and his era to a new generation of readers.
