"An anecdotal reminiscence of America’s chief living genius by his son — short, unconventional, amusing and on the whole revealing." — Book Week.
Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as the twentieth century’s greatest architect — an unconventional genius who transformed both residential and commercial building design with his concept of “organic” architecture. During a long and productive life, Wright designed some 800 buildings, received scores of honors and awards, and left an indelible imprint on modern architectural theory and practice.
In this charming, readable memoir, Wright the architect and father comes to life through the vivid recollections and firsthand knowledge of his son. John Lloyd Wright characterizes his father as “a rebel, a jolt to civilization, whose romantic theme — purposive planning and organic unity in inventing and combining forms — is an epoch in the architecture of the world.” His unique view of the “epoch” will intrigue architects, students, and all who admire the work of this visionary and uncompromising spirit. An added attraction of this volume is the inclusion of the complete text of William C. Gannet's The House Beautiful, an extremely rare work designed and printed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
