|Sunday Book Review of "The Age of Turbulence" by Michael Kinsley (no fan of Objectivism.) |
He credits Rand with broadening his outlook and making him more tolerant of new ideas — not qualities she is often associated with.
Rand’s inner circle was a cauldron of politics and sex, but Greenspan (he says) participated only in the former. He was married for less than a year to Joan Mitchell, whose best friend’s husband was Rand’s lover (got that?). Discreet as always, Greenspan says only that “I’d made an intellectual choice, not an emotional one.” He and Joan are “friends to this day.”
There's nothing particularly new wrt Rand in this review but I included it for completeness.
