Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mr. Talese has written a vivid, highly readable story of the building of the bridge. He has described movingly the people caught up in the project--the engineers, the workers, the displaced, and he sees the bridge as a human rather than a mechanical achievement . . . imparting drama and romance to this bridge-building story.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“This book has the charm of Max Miller's I Cover the Waterfront and the precision of Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon.” ―St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Only a writer in love with his subject could have produced so charming a narrative about a bridge. There are many stories within the story of The Bridge. All are worth reading.” ―Houston Post

“Talese tells warm, funny, and tragic stories of men, women, steel, and concrete. This book is fine reading.” ―Denver Post
