Why did I love this book?
So many people hate Ayn Rand’s work. They consider her a right-wing lunatic. Whatever. I’ll run as a democrat in the next Presidential election, and I absolutely love Ayn Rand. What people fail to understand is Rand is not a political person, but a person of integrity. Such is never more clear than in her classic The Fountainhead, where Howard Roark is challenged by the entire city for his rebellious architecture. But Roark would be willing to destroy his career in order to preserve his precise vision of what architecture should be. For him, the integrity of the artist is by the far the most important thing in the world. That’s what this book is about, and why I absolutely love it.
