Frank Lloyd Wright

Off in the distance is the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin. A better photo would have been produced, but your photographer was being heckled by a turtle (see yesterday's post).


Friend Liz reports that Loving Frank, a novel by Nancy Horan, is a good airplane-read. The novel is a fictional account of the real life affair between American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and Martha (Mamah) Borthwick Cheney, which began in the early 1900s. Mr. Wright had three wives; Borthwick Cheney was not one of them.

If you are looking for a nonfiction book concerning Mr. Wright, consider tracking down a copy of The Valley of the God-almighty Joneses (1965 Appleton-Century), written by his sister, Maginel Wright Barney. Ms. Wright Barney and Mr. Wright's mother was Anna Lloyd Jones

For even more interesting information, check out the Taliesin Preservation web site, which answers such questions as 'why do Mr.Wright's roof's leak'?
