As Conrad Black tells it, the basic story is Ayn Randian (a creator of value brung low by parasites in and outside the government). It's not entirely to his credit that I still don't have a particularly good sense of what exactly he was supposed to have done wrong, but possibly that's due to the complexity or weakness of the case. I read it for his angry and contemptuous descriptions of his enemies, which were quite excellent. I felt quite sorry for him by the end, although his tribulations, viewed as a narrative, became pretty monotonous.
