IN THE SHADOW OF GENIUS: THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE AND ITS CREATORS is a brilliant look at one of the most famous bridges in the world by photographer and author Barbara Mensch. As one who has lived in its shadow for three decades, Mensch brings an intimate awareness of the towering structure through her evocative photographs and personal narrative. She also sheds new light on the Roebling masterpiece as she describes the lives of its creators, John, Washington, and Emily Roebling, drawn through study of notebooks, diaries, letters, and illustrations reflecting major events and locations affecting their lives. 5/5
