Overview
Wittgenstein's Mistress is a novel unlike anything David Markson -- or anyone else -- has ever written. It is the story of a woman who is convinced -- and may ultimately convince the reader as well -- that she is the only person left on earth. Presumably she is mad. And yet so appealing is her character, and so witty and seductive her narrative voice, that we will follow her hypnotically as she unloads the intellectual baggage of a lifetime in a series of irreverent meditations on everything from Brahms to sex to Heidegger to Helen of Troy.
