Loving ‘Loving Frank’

Speaking of those great MBA picks, I’d like to shine the spotlight on one of those books: Loving Frank, a novel by Nancy Horan. Not surprisingly, this book is also a popular “pick” of readers and it’s currently on the Indie paperback bestseller list. I was checking it out — you should read the description; the story sounds absolutely fascinating — and I noticed that two previous Northfield Reads! authors are singing its praises:

Says Jane Hamilton, author of When Madeline Was Young and many other acclaimed novels: “It takes great courage to write a novel about historical people, and in particular to give voice to someone as mythic as Frank Lloyd Wright. This beautifully written novel about Mamah Cheney and Frank Lloyd Wright’s love affair is vivid and intelligent, unsentimental and compassionate.”

Says Elizabeth Berg, who seems to have a bestseller out each year: “I admire this novel, adore this novel, for so many reasons: The intelligence and lyricism of the prose. The attention to period detail. The epic proportions of this most fascinating love story. Mamah Cheney has been in my head and heart and soul since reading this book; I doubt she’ll ever leave.”
