Frank Lloyd Wright: A Life
In this book, Ada Louise Huxtable aims to offer an outstanding look at the architect and the man that was Frank Lloyd Wright. She explores the sources of his tumultuous and troubled life and his long career as master builder as well as his search for lasting, true love. Along the way, Huxtable introduces readers to Wright's masterpieces - Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder; the Imperial Hotel, one of the few structures left standing after Japan's catastrophic 1923 earthquake; and tranquil Fallingwater, to which millions have traveled to experience its quiet grace. Through the journey, Huxtable takes readers not only into the mind of the man who drew the blueprints, but also into the very heart of the medium, which he changed forever.
