Readers remember Ayn Rand and cringe

A great article from the awl asks writers and book critics which books they liked when they were younger, but now make them cringe.
The results are interesting, the two authors those surveyed reported most cringe-worthy were Kerouac and, you probably guessed it, Ayn Rand. Ha!

  1. Can’t say that I ever liked Rand, but I certainly applaud those that have outgrown her.

    I tried to read “Atlas Shrugged” in 1977. About the only things I remember are the word “stress” about every tenth paragraph and that I gave up around page 100.
    I thought it was drivel then and fairly nasty with it.
