Summary

The full title of this book is The Early Ayn Rand: A Selection from Her Unpublished Fiction. It includes several unpublished short stories from the 1920s, two plays (Ideal and Think Twice), a screen synopsis (Red Pawn), and excerpts from her novels We the Living and The Fountainhead. These items were selected and edited by Rand's heir Leonard Peikoff, who also provides an introduction and notes. The book was published posthumously in 1984, with a revised edition published in 2005 for the centennial of Rand's birth. The two plays, which were never performed in Rand's lifetime, have since been produced.
