Architect Frank Lloyd Wright earned his fame for building modern houses that redefined the correlation between form and function. This novel is a fictional version of his complicated and scandalous personal life, which included three wives and a mistress. The author is a master storyteller who takes literary license but never loses sight of his subject's humanity. Narrator Grover Gardner has a deep nasal tone that, remarkably, sounds like an old radio broadcaster's voice. This fits the mood of the book perfectly since the story takes place in the 1930s. Gardner is adept at employing pauses and emphasis to accentuate Boyle's prodigious vocabulary, and while he gives his characters inflections that set them apart, he doesn't change his pitch appreciably for female voices.
