Ayn Rand and the Blumenthals

Here's a part of The Passion of Ayn Rand by Barbara Branden that made me laugh. I don't have the book with me so I can't provide the exact quote or page number. Ms. Branden tells the story of why the Blumenthals stopped talking to Ayn Rand. One of the reasons was that she would have long quarrels with them in her apartment, and as soon as they got home she would telephone them to continue the argument until late into the night. The next morning she would call them again to talk and ask if they had thought about the subject of the quarrel, and if they said they hadn't, she would ask them why they hadn't. And finally they just couldn't take it anymore.
