    ITEM#: 3031865

    Ayn Rand's first novel, We the Living, was published in 1936. With the publication of The Fountainhead in 1943, she achieved spectacular and enduring success. Through her novels and nonfiction writings, which express her unique philosophy, Objectivism, Rand maintains a lasting influence on popular thought.
    When The Fountainhead was first published, Ayn Rand's daringly original literary vision and her groundbreaking philosophy, Objectivism, won immediate worldwide interest and acclaim. This instant classic is the story of an intransigent young architect, his violent battle against conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. This edition contains a special Afterword by Rand's literary executor,Leonard Peikoff which includes excerpts from Ayn Rand's own notes on the making ofThe Fountainhead. As fresh today as it was then, here is a novel about a hero--and about those who try to destroy him.

      This is my favorite book and I have purchased more than one since I first read it twenty years ago. It could be written about today and not back in the day. It's scary how Ms. Rand was able to see what many of us don't see now.
