Originally conceived as a novel but then transformed into a play by Ayn
Rand, 'Ideal' is the story of beautiful but tormented actress Kay Gonda.
Accused of murder, she is on the run, and she turns for help to six fans
who have written letters to her, each telling her that she represents their
ideal - a respectable family man, a far-left activist, a cynical artist, an
evangelist, a playboy and a lost soul. Now, both versions are available for
the first time to the millions of Ayn Rand fans around the world, giving
them a unique opportunity to explore the creative process of Rand as she
wrote first a book, then a play, and the differences between the two.
