From the Back Cover:

Franz Schulze delves deeply into Johnson's life - from his childhood in the Midwest to his years at Harvard, from his coming to terms with his homosexuality to his flirtation with the politics of Hitler, Huey Long, and Father Coughlin - to paint an unprecedented portrait of this extraordinary man. A patron of the arts, Johnson helped stage the historic International Style exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in 1932. A critic, a teacher, a "borrower" of ideas, and a living history of modern and postmodern architecture, Johnson has created many controversial and historical buildings, including the Glass House, the Roofless Church, the A T & T Building and the Crystal Cathedral.

About the Author:

Franz Schulze is a Professor of Art at Lake Forest College.
