The Women by T. C. Boyle

The Women is T. C. Boyle's novel about famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright and the women in his life. Wright knew he was a genius and generally lived life according to his own rules. The story is narrated by Sato Tadashi, a student who studied with Wright, and he chronicles Wright's relationship with four different women. Kitty was his first wife whom he left for Marnah, perhaps the love of his life for whom he built the house Taliesin where she died tragically in a fire. After Marnah is Miriam, who was so jealous of all the other women, past and present, in his life that she tried to get him arrested for his affairs and was eager to tell the press everything. Olgivanna was a Montenegrin dancer who became pregnant by Wright while he was still married to Miriam. Frank Lloyd Wright treated everyone as if they were beneath him and the women in his life were no different. The Women has received mostly positive reviews with the Houston Chronicle saying, "Boyle brings to life with great heart and poignancy this flawed genius, this architect so often homeless - and the women who cannot resist him."
