Engrossing and insightful,Modern Man is as much a wonderfully readable, intimate profile of Le Corbusier as it is a lively narrative about the whole notion of modernity.
–Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief and Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend
Anthony Flint has given us a vision of Le Corbusier that his subject might well have designed, with powerful research underpinning sleek, bold insights….An extraordinary guidebook to the world around us and the world we may yet inherit.
–Mitchell Zuckoff, New York Times bestselling author of 13 Hours in Benghazi and Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II
"The life and work of an iconic modernist ... Anthony Flint’s life of “the original star architect” astutely captures Le Corbusier’s hubris and vulnerabilities and makes a persuasive case for his artistic significance." -- Kirkus Reviews
