Now, Ada Louise Huxtable, the Pulitzer Prize- winning architecture writer for The Wall Street Journal—and chief architecture critic for The New York Times for nearly twenty years—offers an outstanding look at the architect and the man.

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 Wrights masterpieces: Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder- the Imperial Hotel, one of the few structures left standing after Japans catastrophic 1923 earthquake- and tranquil Fallingwater, to which millions have traveled to experience its quiet grace.

Through the journey, Huxtable takes us 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. A story of great triumph and heartbreak, Frank Lloyd Wright is, like Wrights own creations, an expertly wrought tribute to a man whose genius lives on in the very landscape of American architecture.
