Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A portrait of the Wittgenstein family of Vienna traces the triumphs and vicissitudes of a star-crossed dynasty held together by a love of music yet torn apart by money, madness, conflicts of loyalty, and the cataclysmic upheaval of two world wars. 20,000 first printing.


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
