Plagued by Fire: The Dreams and Furies of Frank Lloyd Wright – Paul Hendrickson
The egos of architects are often described as monumental and this combination of insufferable egotism and brilliant artistic vision certainly seems to have found a home in Frank Lloyd Wright.
This biography is written by Paul Hendrickson who previously wrote the bestselling Hemingway’s Boat; in this title he illuminates the life, mind and work of one of America’s most important twentieth-century figures. Lloyd Wright had a somewhat troubled life; racked by lies and stifled by the myths that he wove around himself, and someone for whom physical fires played a role in his history.
By showing the reader the facades of his life that he tried to portray and then also revealing the cracks in those facades Hendrickson helps the reader to come to a greater understanding of his subject.
