• • • Ayn Rand’s rebirth: New bio shows why Glenn Beck’s set adores her
Steven Kurutz, Wall Street Journal - Speakeasy Atlas Shrugged |The Fountainhead |Capitalism | Interview with Ayn Rand biographer Anne C. Heller.[Q:] How do [Rand’s] novels hold up as literature? [A:] Her books are what I would call melodramas of ideas. I don’t think anyone would consider them great novels. But in spite of her plots being rather implausible and her characters wooden, she does carry reader along on a rollicking mystery tour and delivers her ideas at just the right intervals.
