By Ayn Rand

Part 1, Chapter 7

  • Feeling generous, or more manipulative than usual, Keating gets Francon to hire Roark as a draftsman.
  • He reluctantly takes the job since he needs food. Yeah, that's a pretty good reason to take a job.
  • Keating enjoys bossing Roark around by day and then has Roark help out with designs by night.
  • Roark enjoys visiting building sites.
  • At one site he befriends a tough electrician named Mike, because he's a bro's bro like that.
