Description
Is it easy to live with a genius? Having brought to life the eccentric cereal king John Harvey Kellogg in The Road to Wellville and Alfred Kinsey in The Inner Circle, PEN/Faulkner Award winner T.C. Boyle here trains his fictional sights on Frank Lloyd Wright, whose life and character are reflected through the tempestuous experiences of the four women who loved him.

"The Women wouldn't be a T.C. Boyle novel if it weren't full of antics generated by bursting passions. In this sense, the historical figure of Wright is a perfect model for Boyle to borrow and transform. Wright’s reputation for impetuousness seems to have made him attractive to women who played haphazardly with their own personal attachments…. With novels that include The Road to Wellville, The Inner Circle and Drop City, Boyle has been writing his own fascinating, unpredictable, alternately hilarious and terrifying fictional history of utopian longing in America. The Women adds a powerful new chapter to this continuing narrative, and it is Boyle at his best. It is a mesmerizing story of women who invest everything, at great risk, in that mysterious 'bank of feeling' named Frank Lloyd Wright."—NYTBR
