About the Author:

Ayn Rand is the originator of the philosophy of Objectivism which has become the centerpiece of the Libertertarian movement.   Born in Russia and emigrating to the United States Rand took her distrust of oppressive government and created a worldwide phenomenon with her classic tomes Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead.   Anthem was her first book published in the United States

From AudioFile:

Ayn Rand's Anthem is a short dystopic novel about a man who escapes a society from which all individuality has been squeezed. Its allegory is crudely transparent, and the ideas have lost their political urgency. (The book was published in 1938, a decade before Orwell's 1984.) But Anthem provides a good introduction to Rand's philosophy of "objectivism," which is built on individuality, freedom, and reason. Paul Meier is an excellent choice for the novel's first-person narrator--he manages to maintain an urgency in his voice, pleading but never whining, mirroring the main character's struggle against his totalitarian world.
