"Frank Lloyd wright in New York: The Plaza Years, 1954-1959", examines the momentous five-year period when one of the world's greatest architects and one of the world's greatest cities coexisted. Authors Jane Hession and Debra Prickel bring each of these unequalled characters to life, exploring the fascinating contradiction between Wright's often-voiced disdain of New York and his pride and pleasure of living in one of the city's greatest landmarks: the Plaza Hotel. From his suite, or "Taliesin the Third", as it became known, Wright supervised construction of the Guggenheim, sparred with the New York press, and received many famous vistitors such as Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller.
