Reviews

"Wonderfully entertaining . . . In his inexhaustible capacity to beguile us as a natural storyteller, T.C. Boyle is surely one of our most American novelists since Mark Twain, and one of our very best."
--The Boston Globe

"Despite dozens of writers' attempts to capture Wright's story, it seems safe to say that none have rendered it with more crackling life than Mr. Boyle."--The Wall Street Journal

"Boyle at his best . . . Love, not architecture, is the focus here. . . . A mesmerizing story of women who invest everything, at great risk, in that mysterious 'bank of feeling' named Frank Lloyd Wright. . . . Boyle doesn't just fiddle around with familiar autobiographical material. He inhabits the space of Wright's life and times with particular boldness."
--The New York Times Book Review
