(Publisher’s Weekly, Feb. 23)
After exploring the lives of cereal king Kellogg (The Road to Wellville) and sex researcher Kinsey (The Inner Circle), Boyle turns his attention to Frankly Lloyd Wright, whose story is told through the experiences of the four women who loved him. The author’s cross-country tour winds up March 1 in Santa Barbara, where he lives in the George C. Stewart house, Wright’s first private residence in California. Publisher’s Weekly starred review called the novel “a lush, dense and hyperliterate book – in other words, vintage Boyle.” After four printings, Viking has shipped close to 55,000 copies.
