New Ayn New Rand Novel

There’s a new Rand novel–the first she wrote, almost 80 years ago–coming out next summer.

According to WSJ, “Ideal” tells the story of a screen actress who is accused of murder and visits six of her most devoted fans to ask for help. In 1934, when she was in her late 20s, Rand first wrote “Ideal” as a work of fiction.

But Rand was dissatisfied with it and set it aside. The same year, she rewrote it as a play. The play didn’t have its New York premiere until 2010 – 66 years after she wrote it.

The new book, which contains both the novel and the play, is scheduled to be released on July 7 by Penguin Random House imprint New American Library,
