1. Ayn Rand wasn't a "libertarian." In fact, she despised them. 2. Most libertarians aren't particularly enamored of Rand's philosophy either.
The most common on-line comment I've seen of the New Yorker piece is "Another commentary on Ayn Rand from someone who never read anything she wrote."

Thanks for correction. I took for granted what I "should" have researched. Confusion may be partly explained by:
This graph from Wikipedia's report on Rand:
============================================ Academia has generally rejected Rand's philosophy,[5] although it has been a significant influence among libertarians and American conservatives.
======================= I can only accept as your opinion, though I welcome cites, "Most libertarians aren't particularly enamored of Rand's philosophy either." Lipstick on a pig?
I DID read -- as a clueless teenager -- both of THOSE novels, but have since endeavoured to put my time to more profitable use. Wasn't there something sexy in at least one of them? Memory doesn't stretch back quite that far..
I did find the "review of children's books" story a deft needle plunged into the heart of the Rand mystique (block that metaphor!)
