Reviews

"Dr. Branden's account of his complex relationship with theliterary great . . . allows us a fascinating glimpse into thepassions of their lives--intellectual and personal. . . . [It is]not only a memoir of a mythic woman . . . but a chronicle of astirring intellectual commitment to a political morality thatindivudally could only fail." (NAPRA ReView)

"What a story! It's heroic, romantic, deadly, horrifying, tender-and I couldn't put it down." (George Leonard, author of TheTransformation and Education and Education and Ecstasy)

"Relentlessly revealing. . . the myth of Ayn Rand gives way to afull-sized portrait in contrasting colors, appealing and appalling, potent and paradoxical. . . . it takes a special kind of nerve towrite such a book." (Norman Cousins, author of Head First and TheHealing Heart)

"Non-stop theater. All the ingredients are there: conflict, colorful characters, suspense, and a Greek inevitability of tragedyborn of hubris. There's a nexus of sex nearly dizzying in itspermutations." (Dale Wasserman, playwright and screenwriter, Man ofLa Mancha and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest)

"Branden plots his relationship with Rand from a psychologicalvantage point, with devastatingly articulate results. . . . Afascinating portrait of Rand and her disciples." (KirkusReviews)

"Do you know my greatest reward for 'The Fountainhead?' You." (AynRand to Nathaniel Branden)
