Title: My Father, Frank Lloyd Wright. (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Southern Illinois University Press, Carbondale and Edwardsville)

Author: Wright, John Lloyd; Intro: Menocal, Narciso G.

Description: "A New Edition Including Comments, Responses, and Documents By Frank Lloyd Wright and John Lloyd Wright." Jacket: "John assured his father that he would like the book and sent him a copy on its publication - March 29, 1946. A few days later, Frank Lloyd Wright returned it with numerous comments penciled in the margin, responding to what his son had written, and with a request that a new,  second copy be sent to him. John complied with the request but first transcribed not only all his father’s comments into the clean copy in black pencil but also his own answers to them in red pencil. He also transcribed all these comments into a third copy, again using colors to differentiate his comments from those of his father. This third copy is the basis for this new edition of John Lloyd Wright’s book." Begins with a foreword by Angela Giral, Avery Librarian, and an introduction by Menocal. In addition, this volume includes a new foreword, three insertions, notes throughout by son and father, an addendum, an articled entitled "Special Problems that Befall a Son of a Great Man," written in 1957, and a postscript written by his daughter, intended for a revised edition planned for 1962 but never published.

Title: About Wright: An Album of Recollections by Those Who Knew Frank Lloyd Wright (Hard Cover - DJ)  (Published by John Wiley & Sons)

Author: Tafel, Edgar

Description: In this nostalgic scrapbook, associates of Frank Lloyd Wright describe the architect as a constant stream of energy, a virtuoso draftsman, a man of theatrical presence and hubris with a supreme belief in the importance of his own work. Tafel, an architect and author of Apprentice to Genius, supervised the construction of several of Wright's most famous buildings. Here he stitches together letters, photos, news clips and interviews with Wright's apprentices, clients, contractors, friends, acquaintances, his third wife Olgivanna, their daughter Iovanna, his sons David and Lloyd, plus comments by notables such as Arthur Miller, Robert Moses, Philip Johnson and Andy Rooney. We eavesdrop on ego clashes among apprentices and come to appreciate how Wright's rapport with clients translated into the grammar of the houses he designed for them. This is an intimate, humanizing portrait of a towering figure. (Publisher’s Weekly) Original HC list price $34.95. (Second Edition)

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright in New York. The Plaza Years, 1954-1959 (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Gibbs Smith, Publisher, Layton, Utah)

Author: Hession, Jane King; Pickrel, Debra; Forward by Mile Wallace

Description: Examines the momentous five-year period when one of the world's greatest architects and one of the world's greatest cities dynamically coexisted. From his suite, or "Taliesin East," as it became known, Wright negotiated-with varying measures of creativity, cooperation, and combat - an astonishing array of exchanges with the city's architects, artists, journalists, editors, publishers, designers, celebrities, power brokers, and bureaucrats. Most significantly, he shepherded the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1943-1959), his New York masterwork, to near completion from these sumptuous quarters. Explore the sophistication and vigor of Wright's final years, a time when he was an architect of legend and a bona fide celebrity, and New York was basking in postwar prosperity.
