Hopefully I'm not going daft, but I've always had it in my mind Atlas Shrugged had a previous working title of 'Last Man in the World' ... or something of that order?

However, I have just done a half hour Google search and can't find any reference to that?

Mark -- I sympathize more than you know. I had a great quote from Keirkegaard or Schopenhauer‎ or some such, regarding the evil of cultism, and I haven't been able to locate it in over 30 years now! Still looking... On a more positive note, a few years back I finally tracked down an outstanding song title and group I was hunting for for maybe 20 years. Most of this is frustrating to the purest highest sky! Sad

Her husband Frank suggested Atlas Shrugged as a better title.

I'd not known of The Strike.

I'm 99% certain about 'The Last Man on Earth' ... or 'In The World' or some such. I read it in a literary criticism article but never kept a bookmark, and no amount of Googling can get be back to it. Frustrating.

The Strike

Originally Rand planned to call it The Strike. I don't know if she had other working titles as well.
