Frank Lloyd Wright: An Autobiography (Faber & Faber Ltd, 1945) documents the life and legacy of the architect in his own words. The content is divided into five books: Family, Fellowship, Work, Freedom, and Form. Frank Lloyd Wright discusses his life through anecdotes, descriptions resembling diary entries, meeting notes, letters, and explanations of his own buildings.  The book gives a lively picture of Frank Lloyd Wright’s thinking and working methods.

Strange! At this late date, it is modern architecture that wants life to learn to see life as life, because architecture must learn to see brick as brick, learn to see steel as steel, see glass as glass. So modern thought urges all of life to demand that a bank look like a bank (bad though though a bank might become) and not depend upon false columns for credit. The new architecture urges all of life to demand that an office building look like an office building, even if it should resemble the cross section of a bee-hive.
– The New Integrity in Frank Lloyd Wright: An Autobiography (Faber & Faber Ltd, 1945), p.305
