Summary, etc.:
In this resurrection of architect Frank Lloyd Wright's life, Hendrickson (Hemingway's Boat, 2011) takes an oft-told story and turns it into a braid of multiple narratives that portrays Wright's family, lovers, clients, and enemies, all charmed and cursed by the spell of an extraordinarily gifted man. Some long digressions lead to dead ends, but as Hendrickson travels the arc of Wright's life, his investigation into its deepest mysteries achieves a powerful momentum. Wright was a genius, an egotist, and a man tormented by conscience and regret, and Henderson's inspired storytelling is worthy of its subject.
