The Fountainhead is set in the 1920's and 1930's in the building boom of New York. Most concentrate on this book's main characters business intrests and the building related activities of an Architect who deems his buildings as pieces of Art. Others around him seem to share this view in both raptured jelousy of his talents, and of those viewing the results. I enjoyed more the underlying passion between Rourke and Domonique, the true plot lays with in their intertwined souls and shared world view.
This books is a love story about two people and how that bond can withstand a life's storms and seperations. To me this is the message delivered by Iyn Rand, not the political intrigue, artistic steadfastness, or even megolamainia other comment on. Simply two peoples passion and its enduring truth.
