The Fountainhead Part 4, Chapter 19

By Ayn Rand

Part 4, Chapter 19

  • Roger Enright buys the Cortlandt House from the government and hires Roark to rebuild it the way he originally wanted.
  • The housing project will charge reasonable rents and is now privately owned and out of government hands, something that Ayn Rand approves of.
  • Wynand is forced to rehire Toohey.
  • But then he shuts down The Banner and tells Toohey he's out of a job.
  • Psych!
  • Toohey just goes to work for another paper, though, so Wynand's victory isn't all that stellar.
  • Wynand hires Roark to build the Wynand skyscraper in Hell's Kitchen.
