Frank Lloyd Wright


Your Jan. 17 TIME was not cooked through. I tasted obsequious reverence in your article on Frank Lloyd Wright.

I prefer your usual recipe which has the sentiment boiled out. A meaty, appetizing dish of facts seasoned with shrewdness & balance—presidents, popes, abdicating kings, all, even Toscanini, served up without goo.

Leave out the sweet stuff. The sob sisters can dish out the halos and the Grand Old Man eulogies. I want TIME salty, penetrating. No drivel, not even in the Art Department.
