Lillian Reardon

Lilian Reardon (Atlas Shrugged), Hank's wife. Maybe even most people marry for the wrong reasons but Hank Reardon really takes the cake with his choice of Lillian. Shallow, trite, insipid, boring and that's before it comes to their fruitless copulation which can only be descibed as tedious; really, Hank would have been better off with his right hand, any day. But even relations with her was preferable an evening with her friends.

“Oh God, Lillian, anything but that party!”

—Hank Readon


“After a while, he noticed the women around him; they all seemed to resemble Lillian”

—Ayn Rand
