Ayn Rand's groundbreaking novel featuring the uncompromising individualist architect Howard Roark. Rand to a friend: "if The Fountainhead does not make me famous, I'll continue to write, but I will not expect any recognition in my lifetime. I know the nature of this novel. I do not care to become famous for any other." When asked what number of copies sold she would consider a success, she replied ambitiously "one hundred thousand copies." To date, the book has been translated into 20 languages and has sold over 6.5 million copies.Item #901299
