A novel by Nancy Horan displays the genius architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, while it allows the selfish, narcissist man to be exposed. The multiple murder of Wright’s companion of many years Mamah Borthwick Cheney and her children at Taliesin, Wright’s Wisconsin summer home, is handled delicately. Wright’s design principles: the use of native materials, open interior floor plans, and multiple windows which integrated the outdoor areas with interior spaces are explained in context of the novel.
