In 1885, nine years after his invention of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell and his wife built a house and laboratory in Nova Scotia, where they summered for the next thirty-seven years. In Genius at Work, Eber weaves together the reminiscences of neighbours with excerpts from family journals, diaries and letters, to create an engaging account of this energetic, exuberant and occasionally eccentric man. Equally fascinating are the photographs that document his work and family. Together with the text, they shed new light on the career and character of this great inventor.
