Publisher's Summary

Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as the twentieth century's greatest architect - an unconventional genius who transformed both residential and commercial building design with his concept of "organic" architecture. During a long and productive life, Wright designed some 800 buildings, received scores of honors and awards, and left an indelible imprint on modern architectural theory and practice. In this charming memoir, Wright the architect and father comes to life through the vivid recollections and firsthand knowledge of his son. John Lloyd Wright characterizes his father as "a rebel, a jolt to civilization, whose romantic theme - purposive planning, and organic unity in inventing and combining forms - is an epoch in the architecture of the world." His unique view of that epoch will intrigue architects, students and all who admire the work of this visionary and uncompromising spirit.

    "A personal, positive look at Wright"

    This book gives an excellent look at Wright's life, work, philosophy, architecture and relationships. It covers a much more human look at the great man and his work that the documentaries usually don't have enough time to get just right. It is also as much about the great life of the author and great architect, John Lloyd Wright. I enjoyed this book very much and I would recommend it to anyone interested in architecture and/or Frank Lloyd Wright and wants an honest, complete view of his life and work. Its also one of those great personal stories that you just can't get in fiction.
