The Bridge is a riveting human drama of politics and courage, and a demonstration of the legendary Gay Talese's consummate skills as a reporter and storyteller.Towards the end of 1964, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge-linking the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island with New Jersey-was completed. It remains an engineering marvel almost forty years later-at 13,700 feet (more than two and a half miles), it is still the longest suspension bridge in the United States and the sixth longest in the world. Gay Talese, then early in his career at the New York Times, closely followed the construction, and soon after the opening his book The Bridge appeared. Talese's memorable narrative is captivating in how it captures the human and mechanical drama that surrounded this remarkable achievement.
