T C Boyle on Frank Lloyd Wright

If you're looking for a different perspective on Frank Lloyd Wright, we've bought a copy of T C Boyle's book 'The women', a semi-fictional account of FLW's disastrous relationships with three successive women, narrated from the perspective of a Japanese apprentice. It's a less-than-flattering portrait of FLW, and architecture is very much at the margins of the story, but as with all Boyle's books, it's a beautifully written tale. Perhaps appropriately, it's on the GSA Library fiction shelves under 'BOY'.
