I just read this in Bruce Ramsey’s wonderful biography of Garet Garrett, Unsanctioned Voice. It turns out that a young Henry Hazlitt, writing for the New York Sun in 1927, actually reviewed Garrett’s last novel Harangue, a story about the socialist takeover of a state that ended in chaos and poverty. Hazlitt said that it is “an economic treatise disguised as a work of fiction.” (It ran in the February 26, 1927, issue, if anyone can get the full version). So it occurs to me that Harangue might have been a model for Hazlitt’s own novel Time Will Run Back. It’s all rather seamless in a lovely way.
