Book of the Moment

Today sees the release of T.C. Boyle's latest novel, The Women, where the author "turns his fictional sights on ... Frank Lloyd Wright."

The twist that sets Boyle's book apart from other books on Wright -- fiction and non-fiction -- is the telling of the story from the point of view of the four women who loved him. Check out Boyle's web page for an excerpt from the novel and Leonard Lopate's show from yesterday for an interview with the author.

  1. There was also a good review of the book in the New York Times Book review on January 29th: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/01/books/review/Scott-t.html?_r=1

  2. Thanks, Andrew. That was one of two reviews mentioned during the Lopate interview. The other review was not positive, so it remained unnamed. Boyle seemed to chalk it up to personal animosity.
