Reading the, almost, Picasso-esque exploits of Frank Lloyd Wright should have been no surprise. But, it was. The huge personalities of some great artists include their private lives. What a great adventure, learning of Wright and his women!
Wanting to read more of this author, I discovered "The Tortilla Curtain." Again, it gives insights into the lives of those around my own. The story in this book juxtaposes the families living within walking distance of each other who couldn't be more dissimilar. The illegal immigrant family is camping in Topanga Canyon and the American family is living in a soon-to-be gated upscale neighborhood. When their lives touch we discover much about ourselves.
