"A stimulating, well-balanced treatment....With its dollop of sizzle, this fluently written biography will provoke renewed interest in Wright's architecture." (Publishers Weekly)
Here is the perfect counterpoint to Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead": Ada Louise Huxtable gives us a satisfying and up-to-date story of the roguish, egotistical, despicable, brilliant, and completely human FLW, in a biography thoroughly researched and wonderfully told. An added plus: Huxtable's superb and often poetic descriptions of some of Wright's architectural masterpieces. Also, for Rand readers, a hilarious anecdote involving the avatar of objectivism. A must read!
Yes. It was a quick read. Short book. And it was very interesting.
I learned things that I did not know. It focused on his life, not just his work, and referenced other authors. That was smart.
She did very well. Easy to listen to.
I was shocked by how rude Frank Lloyd Wright could be.
If you want to learn about the life of Frank Lloyd Wright, start here.
I LOVE this book!! It's a great telling of the strange life of a quirky genius. Ms. Huxtable is brilliant at describing Wright's unique and wonderous creations. Also, Ms. Carrington, the reader, really adds value to the narrative! HIGHLY recommended!
As a Chicago native I've always known about Frank Lloyd Wright. Although interested in understanding more about his work, I wanted a deeper look into his personal life and his notorious relationships with various women throughout his lifetime.
I admit I didn't finish listening to this book because it just seemed to focus so much on his work.
If you're a true architecture buff this book is definitely for you. Otherwise you might want to look for another book on FLW's life.
