The Rory Gilmore Book Club: 20 Of The Gilmore Girls Character’s Most Beloved Books
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
Speaking of Jess, Rory’s best boyfriend (literally, fight us) questions her love for The Fountainhead because Ayn Rand is a political nut. Ayn Rand *is* a political nut, but Jess’s alternate suggestion of Ernst Hemingway isn’t much more appealing. Rory first read The Fountainhead when she was ten, but gave it a second try five years later because she hadn’t understood a word. If Rory can read The Fountainhead twice, we’ll consider giving the surprising favorite about an individual architect battling against establishment elites a chance.
