Accompanying the book is a facsimile letter and addressed envelope of Ayn Rand written to husband Frank O'Connor in 1936 - her first letter of love. Letter in envelope kept in place inside clamshell cover with white satin ribbon as bow. Ayn Rand s surviving letters track the arc of her career from a budding playwright and novelist in the 1930s to an accomplished author of best sellers in the 1940s and 1950s to a philosopher and cultural commentator in the 1960s and 1970s. Collected and organized by editor Michael S. Berliner, the Ayn Rand Institute's first executive director, Rand s letters are consistently full of original observations, reflecting the force of her intellect and personality, as she writes to literary agents, editors, producers, publishers, directors, screenwriters, actors, journalists, intellectuals, other novelists, ministers, artists, political activists, attorneys, prominent businessmen, fans, and friends and relatives. "Here is Ayn Rand talking about everything under the sun," writes Rand s longtime associate Leonard Peikoff of these collected letters, "and now we have the privilege of listening in."
