Editorial Reviews

Yaron Brook
Not only is Dr. Mayhew's book the first compilation of scholarly essays on Ayn Rand's classic novel The Fountainhead, it also contains some brilliant work and insights of many of the top Ayn Rand scholars working today. I'm very excited to see that The Fountainhead-one of the greatest and most popular novels of the 20th century-is now receiving the kind of scholarly attention that it clearly deserves.
James G. Lennox
Whether you are interested in Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead as a cultural phenomenon, a literary creation or a philosophical manifesto, this collection of essays illuminates it with insights, large and small, on every page. It has given me a deeper appreciation for every aspect of this great novel and for its author.
