Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Fountainhead is an unprecedented phenomenon in modern literature. Arguably the century's most challenging novel of ideas, when first published in 1943 it created a public furor and worldwide interest in its brilliant author, Ayn Rand.

On the surface, it is a story of a gifted young architect, his violent battle with conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with the beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. In his fight for success, he first discovers then rejects the seductive power of fame and money, finding that creative genius must ultimately triumph.

This novel also addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. The confrontation of these themes, along with the amazing stroke of Rand's writing, combine to give The Fountainhead its enduring influence. Indeed, it is as relevant today as it was when written.

Synopsis:

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 of The Fountainhead. As fresh today as it was then, here is a novel about a hero--and about those who try to destroy him.

Synopsis:

A phenomenal bestseller since its publication in 1943, The Fountainhead brought Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism to a worldwide audience. As ori ginal today as when it was written, this novel reinvents the modern-day hero. This anniversary edition includes a special afterword by Leonard Peikoff and excerpts from Rand's own notes about the book.

Jacob Seluga, January 1, 2010 (view all comments by Jacob Seluga)
This book stabs deep at interpersonal relationships and the nature of success. Highlights are the exemplification of individuality and originality that is becoming less and less prevalent in today's world. Heavily laden and rich with ideas, and with a plot that keeps your interest throughout, this is one of the best books I have ever read.
