Read full description of the books:
Ispirata a Frank Lloyd Wright, il genio americano dell'architettura, autore di capolavori come il museo Guggenheim, è la storia di Howard Roark, giovane architetto di talento, deciso a rinunciare a fama e carriera e a lottare contro i pregiudizi e le convenzioni, pur di affermare il proprio genio. Nella sua battaglia contro lo status quo e per il diritto all'arte vera, libera e creatrice, Howard si imbatte in ogni variante di corruzione umana, inclusi un rivale senza scrupoli e privo di morale, Peter Keatin e un potente editore, Ellsworth Toohey. È anche la storia di un amore contrastato, struggente e impossibile che si intreccerà indissolubilmente con la vita e la carriera di Howard.

Read information about the authorAlisa Rosenbaum was born in pre-revolutionary St. Petersburg to a prosperous Jewish family. When the Bolsheviks requisitioned the pharmacy owned by her father, Fronz, the Rosenbaums fled to the Crimea. Alisa returned to the city (renamed Leningrad) to attend the university, but in 1926 relatives who had already settled in America offered her the chance of joining them there. With money from the sale of her mother's jewelry, Alisa bought a ticket to New York. On arrival at Ellis Island, she changed into Ayn (after a name of some Finnish author, probably "Aino") Rand (which she said was an abbreviation of her Russian surname). She moved swiftly to Hollywood, where she learned English, worked in the RKO wardrobe department and as an extra, and wrote through the night on screenplays and novels. She also married a bit-part actor called Frank O'Connor because he was 'beautiful' - and because her original visitor's visa had run out.
Rand sold her first screenplay in 1932, but nobody would buy her first novel We the Living (1936) a melodrama set in Russia. Her first real success was The Fountainhead (rejected by more than ten publishers before publication in 1943).
She started a new philosophy known as Objectivism, opposed to state interference of all kinds, and her follow-up novel Atlas Shrugged (1957) describes a group who attempt to escape America's conspiracy of mediocrity. Objectivism has been an influence on various other movements such as Libertarianism, and Rand's vocal support for Laissez-faire Capitalism and the free market has earned her a distinct spot among American philosophers, and philosophers in general.
