A Sort-of Book Tour

After nine years of work, The Man in the Glass House is finally an actual book between hard covers. With a beautiful jacket. The official publication date is November 6. We planned that figuring it would be a typical slow news day. Kidding! But I do hope the book will be something of an antidote to the current political madness, although I think it also helps to explain it, and the parallels to this moment in Johnson’s and American history are pretty stark. I will be doing a good bit of speaking over the next few months to talk about the book, and more generally architecture and criticism, and I would be thrilled for anyone who takes the time out of their schedule to join me. There are links below to forthcoming programs, including several in the immediate future in Dallas and New York.
