About the Author

Gay Talese is the bestselling author of eleven books including The Kingdom and the Power: The, Thy Neighbor's Wife, Honor Thy Father, and A Writer's Life. Bloomsbury has published two collections of his writing, The Gay Talese Reader and The Silent Season of a Hero. Talese lives in New York City


"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
