About this title


A critical biography of one of the world's most famous architects and architectural critics unravels the intricacies of Philip Johnson's personal and professional lives and discusses his role in the evolution of modern and postmodern architecture. 20,000 first printing.

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.

Store Description

Avenue Victor Hugo Books specialize in first editions of the best in fiction, history, biography, poetry, drama, and essay, as well as the good items which happen to come our way in other subjects. Genre literature such as Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, and Westerns will remain of special interest to us. We also carry many collectible magazines, including TIME, LIFE, National Geographic, and Playbill. Our catalogue features careful, considered assessments of all of our stock. We are not flippers selling books by the pound. Instead, we try to limit our stock to books in a condition we'd be proud to place on our personal bookshelves. Books are something to be cherished, so that's what we do. After years of running our bookstore on Newbury Street in Boston's Back Bay, our store has moved. We are now located in Lee, New Hampshire, less than 10 minutes from the University of New Hampshire. Our store is open from 10am to 6pm every Saturday.
