The Women in the Life of Frank Lloyd Wright

The Women by T.C. Boyle is a new novel about the four major ladies in the life of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Jacket Copy has a nice round-up of some of the press about the book. NPR also reviews the book, which you can listen to here. And the Boston Globe says, "Boyle's portrait of Wright himself as an egomaniac dodging his creditors, soaking his clients, and bamboozling his women is deliciously repulsive. At the same time, Boyle does a brilliant job of exploring Wright's matchless artistic sensibilities."
