• • Jeanne Thornton’s Cult Heroine
Atlas Shrugged | Interview with Jeanne Thornton, author of The Dream of Doctor Bantam.
THORNTON: [....] This is my Interview Magazine confession: in high school I was a really big fan of Atlas Shrugged. Like, there are creepy 15-year-olds who are really into Ayn Rand, and then there are people in politics who are terrifying right now. We've definitely identified these books as cultlike. It's not good for anyone to have that much power over you.
