What People are Saying About This

Author of Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life - Ruth Franklin

“Philip Johnson’s Glass House is exposed to the elements, but the life of its creator abounds in shadow. Mark Lamster thoughtfully teases out the real history of this modernist icon, from his impressive sexual appetites and more-than-flirtation with fascism in Hitler’s Germany to his 1990s collaboration with Donald Trump. It’s clear that Johnson was a fascinating and disturbing figure; Lamster’s biography, impressively and honestly, displays him with his full complexity.”
