The story of how Frank Lloyd Wright drew up America's finest Twentieth-Century house in the time it took the client to drive two hours to meet him is the stuff of legend. Edgar Tafel, the last remaining person left alive to re-tell the story tells all on-air to Franklin Toker -- author of Fallingwater Rising.

"Wright never liked to draw until he knew what he was going to draw," says Tafel. You can listen to his story here.
