Essays on Ayn Rand's "We the Living" Paperback / softback

Edited by Robert Mayhew


This is the second edition of the study of Ayn Rand's first novel, We the Living, which is set in Soviet Russia, and was written in 1936, ten years after she left the U.S.S.R.

Topics explored include: the fascinating history behind the novel's creation; its autobiographical nature; its reception during America's "Red Decade"; its connection to Victor Hugo (Rand's favorite novelist); and, the philosophy of freedom and the sanctity of life which it portrays and defends.
