Wit in Love
Wit in Love is the story of a philosopher who falls in love. The narrator lives so much in his head that he has an extraordinarily strained relationship with reality. Written in the form of a journal, Wit in Love chronicles the day-to-day existence of a man who is struck – anything but – dumb, by romance. There are three young men in his life — a shabby graduate student, a sexy train attendant, and the living memory of a past love. Wit in Love is loosely based on the life and loves of Ludwig Wittgenstein.
About The Author
Reviews of this Book
“Gilbert is a world class rambler…nothing but entertaining.”
–The Toronto Star
“I think Wit in Love is astounding, and I think Sky Gilbert…as a writer of prose…is perhaps our most subtle and nuanced. Working carefully and weighing each word, Gilbert creates a vivid and compelling portrait of an intellectually-defended philosopher trying to ride shotgun on his very human emotions.”
-Paul Quarrington, author of Whale Music and The Ravine
