It is as much a part of New York as the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. Yet iconic though it is, its builder is almost forgotten. Former Literary Editor of The Times and twice a judge of the Man Booker Prize, Erica Wagner, brings to life one of the heroes of American civil engineering, Washington Roebling.
