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: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. The Wittgenstein family was one of the richest, most talented and most eccentric in European history. The domineering paternal influence of Karl Wittgenstein left his eight children fraught by inner antagonisms and nervous tension. Three of his sons committed suicide; Paul, the fourth, became a world-famous concert pianist (using only his left hand), while Ludwig, the youngest, is now regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. In this dramatic historical and psychological epic, Alexander Waugh traces the triumphs and vicissitudes of a family held together by a fanatical love of music yet torn apart by money, madness, conflicts of loyalty and the cataclysmic upheaval of two world wars.
