When "The Fountainhead" was first published, Ayn Rand's daringly original literary vision and her groundbreaking philosphy, Objectivism, won immediate worldwide interest and acclaim. This instant classic is the story of an intransigent young architect, his violent battle against conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. This edition contains a special Afterword by Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff, which includes excerpts from Ayn Rands' own notes on the making of "The Fountainhead." As fresh today as it was then, here is a novel about a hero - and about those who try to destroy him.

A writer of great power. She has a subtle and ingenious mind and the capacity of writing brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly. ("The New York Times")From the Back Cover:
'The Fountainhead' is one of the greatest books of its time. In it you will meet, head-on, the brilliant young architect Howard Roark. You will witness the beauty, desirability and dangerous ambition of Dominique Francon. You will reel, stunned, like the millions of other readers who have assured this book a place in the century's history, at the meeting, and mating of these two most powerful creatures in modern America.
'The Fountainhead' is about ambition, power, gold and love – a love so firm that it triumphed over slander, separation, jealousy, and the cruel assaults of those who sought to destroy it.
"Ayn Rand is a writer of great power... she writes brilliantly, beautifully, bitterly"
