Internally clean. Her first novel, the semi-autobiographical "We the Living" is set in Communist Russia, it focused on the struggle between the individual and the state. Adapted into a pair of Italian films, "Noi vivi" and "Addio, Kira", in 1942. Rediscovered in the 1960s, these films were later re-edited into a new version which was approved by Rand and re-released, posthumously as "We The Living" (1986).
Autobiographical novel by Ayn Rand, who was born in Russia in 1905 and lived through the formative years of the Soviet Union before coming to the West. We The Living chronicles the corrosive effects of collectivism on the human spirit. Perhaps even more relevant and important today than it was when it first appeared in 1936. Lenin's cry of "Peace, Land, Bread" is simply an earlier expression of Obama's "Hope and Change". A great book. Read it.
