Only 12 years after arriving in the United State as a German immigrant with a slim understanding of English, Ayn Rand published THE FOUNTAINHEAD and carved out her legacy. This collection of unfinished and largely developmental short stories offers strong characters with integrity and purpose, and provides some insight into Rand's growth as a writer. In brief, intimate readings, narrator Bernadette Dunne creates realistic characters with only slight shifts in tone. Most of the stories are written in the first person, and Dunne demonstrates her ability to realize each character without theatrics. Dunne's voice shifts almost imperceptibly between description and dialogue, and the result is a resonating, unencumbered performance. L.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
