Two college students, Woodroe Raynor and Leonora Goldstein, meet in the fall of 1960 before embarking on separate paths. Woodroe goes to work for the indiscriminately anti-Communist John Birch Society: through his eyes, we see how anti-Communism defined American politics while nearly defeating itself in its own extremism. Leonora becomes a novitiate in the libertarian-objectivist cult of novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand: through her, we witness how sexual passion shaped Rand's movement. But a singular romance blooms as the two make their way through the tumultuous era, navigating the political fault line that would change American history.

I thought this was boring until I started listening to "Conservatives Without Conscience" !
But even this uninteresting book is better than that. That's the best that I can say about it.
