Generally I’m not a fan of experimental novels but ‘Wittgenstein’s Mistress’ is one of those exceptions. In fact I couldn’t put it down and in the process I felt more intelligent reading it!
The plot – if there is a thing – is about a woman who thinks she’s the only person left in the world but really it’s a philosophical meditation on Wittgenstein’s use of language in society.
I simply love the writing style – short sentences filled with trivia about art, architecture and literature. All are interconnecting and create one whole.
I’m replicating it here in the blog.
Sorry it’s a bit short.
I’ve got lots of work at the moment so I just have to squeeze in these blog posts.
Did you know that tortellini is based of Venus di Milo’s Bellybutton?
