Review:

A writer of great power. She has a subtle and ingenious mind and the capacity of writing brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly. ("The New York Times")

From the Back Cover:

'The Fountainhead' is one of the greatest books of its time. In it you will meet, head-on, the brilliant young architect Howard Roark. You will witness the beauty, desirability and dangerous ambition of Dominique Francon. You will reel, stunned, like the millions of other readers who have assured this book a place in the century's history, at the meeting, and mating of these two most powerful creatures in modern America.

'The Fountainhead' is about ambition, power, gold and love – a love so firm that it triumphed over slander, separation, jealousy, and the cruel assaults of those who sought to destroy it.

"Ayn Rand is a writer of great power... she writes brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly"
NEW YORK TIMES

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Her first major literary success, Ayn Rand s The Fountainhead is an exalted view of her Objectivist philosophy, portraying a visionary artist struggling against the dull, conformist dogma of his peers; a book of ambition, power, gold and love, published in Penguin Modern Classics.Architect Howard Roark is as unyielding as the granite he blasts to build with. Defying the conventions of the world around him, he embraces a battle over two decades against a double-dealing crew of rivals who will stop at nothing to bring him down. These include, perhaps most troublesome of all, the ambitious Dominique Francon, who may just prove to be Roarke s equal. This epic story of money, power and a man s struggle to succeed on his own terms is a paean to individualism and humanity s creative potential. First published in 1943, The Fountainhead introduced millions to Rand s philosophy of Objectivism: an uncompromising defence of self-interest as the engine of progress, and a jubilant celebration of man s creative potential.Ayn Rand (1905-1982), born Alisa Rosenbaum in St. Petersburg, Russia, emigrated to America with her family in January 1926, never to return to her native land. Her novel The Fountainhead was published in 1943 and eventually became a bestseller. Still occasionally working as a screenwriter, Rand moved to New York City in 1951 and published Atlas Shrugged in 1957. Her novels espoused what came to be called Objectivism, a philosophy that champions capitalism and the pre-eminence of the individual. If you enjoued The Fountainhead, you might like Rand s Atlas Shrugged, also available in Penguin Modern Classics. In The Fountainhead power, greed, life s grandeur flow hot and red in thrilling descriptions London Review of Books Ayn Rand is a writer of great power. she writes brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly The New York Times.
