Celebrating Atlas: Still radical after all these years

You're unlikely to find such a thing on the front page of any NZ daily, but Sunday's Orange County Register in L.A. carried a richly deserved front-page piece celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Ayn Rands novel Atlas Shrugged, recently selected to join the list of Penguin Modern Classics.

Read Onkar Ghate's full celebration of Rand's world-changing magnum opus here. As he says,
With the 1957 publication of "Atlas Shrugged," Ayn Rand became the most remarkable of individuals: a moral revolutionary. For anyone interested in ideas, it's a book that deserves to be read and re-read.
Sure does.


  1. You're Galt damn right. Good post PC, and what an article.

  2. Yes, it is a damn good good book. I loved it, though at my slow reading speed it took me a few months to read. Good article, to (that didn't take me so long to read).
