WHO WAS BJORN FAULKNER? To the world, he was a startlingly successful international tycoon and head of a vast financial empire. To his beautiful secretary — and mistress — he was a god-like hero to be served by her mind, soul and body.
To his aristocratic young wife, he was a singular force of nature to be tamed. To his millionaire father-in-law, he was a giant whose single error could be used to destroy him.
What kind of man was Bjorn Faulkner? Only YOU can decide!
On one level, Night of January 16th is the destruction of a brilliant and ruthless man. On a deeper level, it is a superb dramatic objectification of Ayn Rand’s vision of human strength.
