About this title

Synopsis:

Samuel Grafton-Hall is a man of genius who demands reverence from all. A renowned architect, his point of view is not universally shared by students, critics, and colleagues – but this is of little consequence to Grafton-Hall, for he revels in his misanthropy.

Immune to the barbs of the masses, Grafton-Hall also suffers no qualms about his personal peccadilloes and perversions. An unrepentant womanizer, Grafton-Hall leaves colleagues, friends, and lovers deeply scarred from having known him.

And then there is the murder. The question of guilt is of less consequence than the question of whether the gift of genius makes one irreproachable.

A rich novel that will sweep you into a life of glittering achievement and the core of hubris, A Man of Genius will forever alter your ideas about success and pride. Written in the haunting style of du Maurier’s Rebecca, this is a compelling story, told with intelligence and classic style.

 

Review:

"The drama unfolds amid passages brimming with vivid descriptions . . . lovingly crafted and complex; a nightstand book for lovers of Wuthering Heights and Bleak House." Kirkus Review "Rosen has written a wonderful story reminiscent of Daphne DaMaurier's Rebecca in tone. . . . Rosen is a masterful storyteller, grabbing the reader's attention by the end of the prologue, then slowly revealing the story out of chronological order and in distinct stages, making this novel difficult to put aside until its suspenseful conclusion." San Francisco Book Review * * * * * (5/5) "A rich, compelling insight filled novel of mystery and ideas about a much admired architect, a man with secrets, and about the women he loved and used. The characters are fascinating and the descriptions vivid. By the end we cannot help but wonder what we would do in such circumstances." Judy Tatelbaum, best selling author of The Courage To Grieve and You Don't Have To Suffer
