The Times Literary Supplement Reviews Rand's Novels
Submitted by James S. Valliant on Fri, 2007-07-27 00:03
According to its newsletter:
"IN THIS WEEK'S ISSUE OF THE TLS (The Times Literary Supplement):"
"Reagan the Astute: The popular notion of Ronald Reagan as a lazy bungler has long been questioned; but only now, with the publication of his diaries, do we encounter a shrewd and watchful President determined to have his own way. Edward N. Luttwak peers beneath the 'studied pose of amiable vagueness', and finds an economically savvy, anti-racist, tough on Communism..."
"Harry Potter and the shadow of Karamazov: The darkest and most allusive of J. K. Rowling's seven books points to C. S. Lewis, Tolkien - and even Dostoevsky. Much of the writing remains bland; but Roz Kaveney is still impressed..."
Imagine also my surprise at reading this in the "Table of Contents":
"Mark Crees - Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged"
This issue won't hit U.S. newsstands until next week, so maybe our friends across the pond could check it out for us in the meantime... So, are we tantalized?
