Any biography about FLLW will be one of the most interesting books you have read. At one point, when he was away from Taliesin, one of his employees locked all but one door, lit the place on fire, and attacked everyone who tried to escape with an axe. He followed all that with drinking acid, which didn't kill him right away. You can't make that kind of thing up. Huxtable did a good job of explaining Wright's story, he liked to invent a persona for himself, and the historical truth.
