New ‘lost’ Ayn Rand novel will bring her crimes against literature to new generation of jerks



It was once wryly observed by author John Rogers that “(t)here are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

Now those emotionally stunted, socially crippled man-children have new reason to rejoice. No, not the mid-term elections. No, no, not the release of Grand Theft Auto V.

No, my friends, I’m afraid it’s much, much worse than that. It’s a new Ayn Rand novel.


For the first time in more than 50 years, publishers are rolling out a new novel by the godmother of libertarianism, the previously unpublished Ideal. The book tells the story of a movie actress who is accused of murder.

2. It is her ideal in action. The corporate world making money off her corpse's name

I hope she enjoys them abusing her name by publishing a book in her name that she didn't publish in her lifetime. I seems fitting to me.

3. which child-sawer will Patricia Highsmith's crappy cousin be basing THIS on?

a whole new wave of NEETs will be told they're running the world and a new slew of individualists will think exactly the same
