Frank Lloyd Wright's women

The Women is not the first time T.C. Boyle has recreated the life of a famous historical figure. The Road to Welville and Riven Rock both brought to life two American industrialists. In The Women, T.C. Boyle deconstructs the private lives (and wives, etc.) of the revolutionary 20th-century architect Frank Lloyd Wright. With daredevil artistry, Boyle narrates the story backward in time, so that when we meet Wright's glamorously narcissistic second wife, Maude Miriam Noel—successor to free-spirited Mamah and poor, abandoned Kitty—we've already seen the havoc she wreaks. Annotated, in piquant footnotes, by an ex-apprentice named Tadashi, the novel seems to rise fully articulated, like one of Wright's own iconic constructs. This is a tale of seductive genius: who can resist a man who reshapes the world. - Fly at a Smile-Price
