Ayn Rand is best known as the author of two phenomenally best-selling ideological novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, which have sold over twelve million copies in the United States alone. Through them, she built a cult following in the late 1950s and became the guiding light of libertarianism and of White House economic policy throughout the Reagan years and beyond. Her defenses of radical individualism and of selfishness as a "capitalist virtue" have permanently altered the American cultural landscape. Anne C. Heller traveled to Russia to discover Rand's Russian and Jewish roots and her misunderstood youth, interview surviving acquaintances, and unearth new archival material. The result is the most comprehensive, revealing, and unbiased biography of one of the most important figures of the twentieth century.
