I am thrilled that NYRB has reprinted Bruce Duffy’s novel on Wittgenstein, Russell and Moore. The World as I Found It rocked my world when I first discovered a used copy of it fifteen years ago. Since then, I’ve lived in fear of losing my tattered copy. It also started me on a never-ending project to understand the immaculate writing in Wittgenstein’s Tractactus. Besides the happy news of it being back in print, Duffy will have a new novel in 2011. I can’t think of better news for the American literary scene.
