Coming to The Daily Show

Again this week, authors rule on the Daily Show.

Two of the three featured authors are no surprise; their books are being heavily promoted and they are owned widely in libraries.

Friday’s guest is Jennifer Burns, author of a new book on Ayn Rand, Goddess of the Market. Few of the libraries we checked have it listed on their catalogs.

The Publishers Weekly review called it “…exasperatingly detailed and slow-going at times. But what University of Virginia historian Burns does well is to explicate the evolution of Rand’s individualist worldview, placing her within the context of American conservative and libertarian thought.”
