from the Author: Ayn Rand. Уявіть, що ви народилися у першій половині ХХ століття в США і раптом виявили, що люди, маючи радіо, газети, кораблі та літаки, досі живуть у будинках, зведених у римському стилі. Вони не сприймають нічого, крім фронтонів, химерних статуеток, карнизів та колон... Відмовляються бачити прогрес. Саме в такій ситуації опиняється головний герой роману — талановитий архітектор Говард Рорк. Він навіть не намагається відкрити оточенню очі на абсурдність ситуації, а просто виконує свою роботу. Таких як він — тих, хто має власну думку — суспільство кличе егоїстами, вважає «хворими» і неправильними. Перед ним зачиняють двері і всіляко намагаються виштовхнути подалі від епіцентру архітектурного життя. Що ж вчинить герой та чи справді бути егоїстом погано?
