Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Though often grim, this is a vivid, detailed, highly readable, if occasionally idiosyncratic narrative, based on extensive archival research. Waugh has provided not only an indispensable addition to our knowledge of the Wittgenstein family, but also a sobering example of how lives were devastated by the "European civil war" of 1914-1945."

Ritchie Robertson, Times Literary Supplement, 12/19/2008

Review:

"Alexander Waugh's grimly amusing THE HOUSE OF WITTGENSTEIN shows how the family fortune was lost and how the family members themselves, despite instances of prodigious talent and accomplishment, found little happiness in their own lives or pleasure in their sibling relations."

James Penrose, Wall Street Journal, 02/28/2009

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 141 mm. Brand New Book. The House of Wittgenstein is the grand saga of a brilliant and tragic Viennese family whose members included a famous philosopher and the world s greatest one-handed classical pianist. The Wittgenstein family was one of the wealthiest, most talented, and most eccentric in European history, held together by a fanatical love of music yet torn apart by money, madness, conflicts of loyalty, and the upheaval of two world wars. Of the eight children, three committed suicide; Paul lost an arm in the war and yet stubbornly pursued a musical career; and Ludwig, the odd youngest son, is now regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. Alexander Waugh, author of the acclaimed memoir Fathers and Sons and himself the offspring of a famous and eccentric family, tells their baroque tale with a novelistic richness to rival Thomas Mann s Buddenbrooks.
