Supplying both a gripping mystery story and a portrait of the artist in his prime, William Drennan wades through the myths surrounding Wright and the massacre, casting fresh light on the formulation of Wright s architectural ideology and the cataclysmic effects that the Taliesin murders exerted on the fabled architect and on his subsequent designs.

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/my-father-frank-lloyd-wrigh...
An anecdotal reminiscence of America's chief living genius by his son - short, unconventional, amusing and on the whole revealing." - Book Week. Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as the twentieth century's greatest architect - an unconventional genius who transformed both residential and commercial building design with his concept of "organic" architecture. During a long and productive life, Wright designed some 800 buildings, received scores of honors and awards, and left an indelible imprint on modern architectural theory and practice. In this charming, readable memoir, Wright the architect and father comes to life through the vivid recollections and firsthand knowledge of his son. John Lloyd Wright characterizes his father as "a rebel, a jolt to civilization, whose romantic theme - purposive planning and organic unity in inventing and combining forms - is an epoch in the architecture of the world." His unique view of the "epoch" will intrigue architects, students, and all who admire the work of this visionary and uncompromising spirit. An added attraction of this volume is the inclusion of the complete text of William C. Gannet's The House Beautiful, an extremely rare work designed and printed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Music and Murder: A Benny Wright Story: Book 2

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/music-and-murder-a-benny-wr...
To his family, he was known as Trance Williams. To his fans and colleagues in the music world, it was Triple-XXX. What distinguished him in the rap scene was his clean lyrics, wholesome sounds and virtuous themes. Then, in the time it takes to fire a bullet, his life was stolen on the streets of Detroit. The police dismissed the killing as drug-related. "Drug-related?" shouted his famous football star brother and their whole family. The kid never touched a joint. What they did not know was that he had his hands in something far more lethal, a self-assigned investigation into the murder of his closest friend months earlier. Trance would learn that the record industry had come under the grip of a group of nasty and tough criminals. The kid came a little too close. Cookie Acosta, a fledgling private sleuth hired by the family, was following the exact same path that Trance's life ended on. She was also targeted for elimination. But then a funny thing happened on the way to…a meeting with the police chief.

Tears of Rage: The Racial Interface of Modern American Fiction-Faulkner, Wright, Pynchon, Morrison

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/tears-of-rage-the-racial-in...
In this provocative study, Shelly Brivic presents the history of the twentieth-century American novel as a continuous narrative dialogue between white and black voices. Exploring four of the most renowned and challenging works written between 1930 and 1990 - William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom, Richard Wright's Native Son, Thomas Pynchon's V, and Toni Morrison's Beloved - Brivic traces how these works progress through the interaction of white and black perspectives toward confronting the calamity of slavery and its reverberating aftermath and continuing legacy. Brivic shows how one novel leads ineluctably to the next and how the four works in a sense form one continuous narrative: with Faulkner's attack on the racial system in Absalom, Absalom! in the 1930s, a literary space opened for Wright's devastating novel of protest. Through the character of Bigger Thomas, Wright's Native Son exposes a virtually incurable division in American ideologies, which leads to the multiplying perspectives of postmodernism in Pynchon's V. Arriving at the crest of the civil rights movement, V. questions Western systems of control, laying a foundation for a world outside the white one, and so providing a basis for the African view of reality presented in Morrison's Beloved. The emergence of African consciousness in American literature exemplified across these works has had, and continues to have, Brivic concludes, the potential not only to redress ongoing injustices but to bring about a new conception of the American universe and its laws of reality. Striking in both the selection of novels and the connections Brivic draws among them, Tears of Rage advances understanding of the destructive nature of racism and the possibilities for overcoming its effects through literature.
