Verlag: New york, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich
cloth, dustj, 8vo xii+211 pp. biography of Bertrand Russell through the eyes of his daughter; LIKE NEW condition. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 18721
Inhaltsangabe: Katharine Tait, daughter of Bertrand and Dora Russell, here vividly portrays the extraordinary and stimulating environment she grew up in. In refreshing contrast to the interpretation of Russell as philosopher and public figure, Tait's is a close personal account of her deep love and admiration for her father and its gradual tempering by the imperfections she came to see in him.
Touchingly written and beautifully described, the book shows Russell to be a man of great warmth, charm and humour, but is also a testament to the traumas created when he applied his views on marriage and education to his own home.
My Father Bertrand Russell is essential reading for those seeking to understand the private background to Russell's ideas, the personal effects of his lifestyle prescriptions, and what it was like to live with a man of such genious.
