Book description on amazon.de:

Welcome to the troubled, tempestuous world of Frank Lloyd Wright. Scandalous affairs rage behind closed doors, broken hearts are tossed aside, fires rip through the wings of the house and paparazzi lie in wait outside the front door for the latest tragedy in this never-ending saga. This is the home of the great architect of the twentieth century, a man of extremes in both his work and his private life: at once a force of nature and an avalanche of need and emotion that sweeps aside everything in its path.

Sharp, savage and subtle in equal measure, The Women plumbs the chaos, horrors and uncontainable passions of a formidable American icon.

Marius other choices would have been:
- Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert
- To the End of the Land, David Grossman
- The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins
- The Name of the Rose, von Umberto Eco
- A Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawking
- The Progress Paradox, Gregg Easterbrook
