I agree with that part, especially the little tid bits like Franklin Lloyed Wright's father working on the White City. I just kept expecting the two tales to come together in some fashion, which they never really did. Perhaps I was setting the book up for failure in that regard. I'd still highly recommend it to anyone looking for a book to read, but that will always be in the back of my mind.
