Mark Sanford Celebrates Ayn Rand

GovernorSanford- OfficialPortrait.jpgIn the last week, literature met politics in two national publications–with some interesting results.

After losing his own book deal, South Carolinia Governor Mark Sanford has turned to literary criticism–singing the praises of novelist Ayn Rand in a Newsweek essay. Here’s a sample: “I still believe firmly that her books deserve attention, and in that regard, Anne Heller‘s Ayn Rand and the World She Made provides important and meaningful insight into the evolution of Rand’s world view. “The Fountainhead” is a stunning evocation of the individual and what he can achieve when unhindered by government or society.”

If that wasn’t enough political literary criticism, The Daily Beast ran a series of video interviews with novelist, Philip Roth. The interview followed the best practices for authorial web videos: unexpected questions, simple editing, and broken into easily-watchable clips. Here’s a quote from “It’s a good book. “Dreams of my Father” is a good book. I read it with great interest, in part because it was written by this guy who was running for President. I found it well-done, very persuasive, and memorable too.” (Via Mediaite)
