A Man of Genius by Lynn Rosen

• R E V I E W •

This is no ordinary novel and is in no way for ordinary readers. Upon reaching the last page, I was stunned wordless as I tried to wrap my head around the entire story, what it all meant (to me) and how the hell I was going to condense the emotion into a review.

But I can’t.

What I will say is that the strings of this story are woven together extraordinarily well. From the beautifully worded architectural scenes, and the thoughtfully crafted characters, to the unique storytelling, this novel is a masterpiece.

I’m going to read it again, and hopefully, one day, own it for my own collection of well-crafted literature.

Literature Fiction (Adult)


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.

I received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
