• • 15 Questions with George Saunders
Rebecca M. Panovka, Harvard Crimson Atlas Shrugged | [Q:] You wrote a “Shouts and Murmurs” humor piece for the New Yorker earlier this year from the perspective of Ayn Rand’s former lover. You mentioned in an interview that before you took to mocking her, you were a fan. How did your politics evolve? Is Rand still an influence in any way? [A:] No, I can’t stand her.
