Article on Atlas Shrugged in the Los Angeles Times

3 posts in this topic

There was a major article on Atlas Shrugged in the Sunday, September 16, 2007 issue of the Los Angeles Times (here).

The article is filled with the usually pseudo-intellectual put-downs and personal digs at Ayn Rand, but the author grudgingly admits that Ayn Rand is an epic storyteller.

Yes, the article did have a lot of aggravating putdowns, but I think ultimately it will persuade a lot of people to give Rand's fiction a try and decide for themselves.

The word 'epic' is frequently used to describe film or fiction, but you'll note these authors will never get into why the word applies.
