Reviews

"Lisa Duggan gets it exactly right . . . when she writes that Rand's 'particular gift was not for philosophical elaboration, but for stark condensation and aphorism. She deployed this gift to create a moral economy of inequality to infuse her softly pornographic romance fiction with the political eros that would captivate a mass readership.'" --Times Higher Education
"Provides an explanation for our current cultural and political moment. . . . Duggan's book sums up Rand's life and philosophy in under ninety pages."--Masha Gessen "The New Yorker "
