Frank Lloyd Wright was the most influential architect of the twentieth-century and a rogue genius whose life was a wild ride. Wright routinely ignored unpaid bills, clients wishes, and budget constraints. Only his creative vision mattered to him. That vision transformed the way we live, sweeping aside the Victorian home and creating a uniquely American architecture exemplified by his Prairie Style houses. Wright built hotels, churches, and offices, too, incorporating endless innovations in techniques and materials. Ideas poured out of him throughout his long career; he called it "shaking the design out of my sleeve." Jan Adkins's fascinating biography of this compelling, infuriating, larger than life figure will change the way every reader looks at architecture.
