It is a novel by Ayn Rand, Russian philosopher, about an architect named Howard Roark. He struggles to get his unique work contracted. There are many side plots with other characters, and a hint of a love story. However, this novel is amazing for the philosophical ideas Rand expresses. I would highly recommend it to anyone!
