Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rand's 1936 novel "We the Living" stands at the beginning of her fiction career and in some ways is her most surprising work. Meticulously crafted from her own experience during the terror of Soviet Russia in the 1910s and 1920s, it was her most widely-reviewed on its original issue and served notice that a major talent had arrived. Critical praise for her writing style, love scenes, and more may take aback those who are used to the unremitting attacks this author inspires. Many angles of the book are considered, and those who have enjoyed the clockwork construction Rand employs will find many of her mechanisms expressed and exposed here. Highly recommended.
