At the time, this was an opportunity for Wright to regain his reputation, which had diminished after the Depression that was creeping into the United States. Also during these difficult years, his house and design studio were also threatened with confiscation because they did not pay the tax to the state. This talented architect came to the
That’s What She Said – a fascinating book about women’s experiences in everyday business life – begins with the delicacy of author Joanne Lipman stating not any individual or group, as a promise to readers, especially her male readers.
