Flannery O’Connor: “The fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you can get”

17 August 2012

“I hope you don’t have friends who recommend Ayn Rand to you. The fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you can get re fiction. I hope you picked it up off the floor of the subway and threw it in the nearest garbage pail. She makes Mickey Spillane look like Dostoevsky.”

– Flannery O’Connor, in The Habit of Being
