IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - June 16, 2014) - The Ayn Rand Institute is excited to announce the new publication of a lost Ayn Rand novel. Ayn Rand's work Ideal, written in 1934, is scheduled for release by Penguin Random House in July of 2015 and will be paired with Rand's play of the same name into a single volume. The introduction will be written by Rand's designated heir, Leonard Peikoff.
"We are delighted to share this wonderful news," said ARI executive director Yaron Brook. "How often does one get to announce the new publication of a novel by such an influential author eighty years after the book was written? It's incredible to see that several decades after Rand's death, her work and ideas are still fresh and alive in the culture."
The Ayn Rand Institute's Objectivist Summer Conference 2014 (Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, June 27-July 4) will feature a Q&A event on Ideal. Dr. Leonard Peikoff, in a rare public appearance, will field questions about the book, its ideas and the history of this important new publication.
