The Journals of Ayn Rand Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rarely has a writer and thinker of the stature of Ayn Rand afforded us access to her most intimate thoughts and feelings. From Journals of Ayn Rand, we gain an invaluable new understanding and appreciation of the woman, the artist, and the philosopher, and of the enduring legacy she has left us. Rand comes vibrantly to life as an untried screenwriter in Hollywood, creating stories that reflect her youthful vision of the world. We see her painful memories of communist Russia and her struggles to convey them in We the Living. Most fascinating is the intricate, step-by-step process through which she created the plots and characters of her two masterworks, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and the years of painstaking research that imbued the novels with their powerful authenticity. Complete with reflections on her legendary screenplay concerning the making of the atomic bomb and tantalizing descriptions of projects cut short by her death, Journals of Ayn Rand illuminates the mind and heart of an extraordinary woman as no biography or memoir ever could. On these vivid pages, Ayn Rand lives.

Synopsis:

Beginning in 1927, when she was writing scenarios for the silent screen, and extending through the 1960s, this collection of the never-before published journals of Ayn Rand--author of such masterpieces as "Atlas Shrugged" and "The Fountainhead"--offers a groundbreaking view of her work to develop and refine her intellectual principles, the cornerstone of her tremendous appeal and popularity.
