das-kind-heisst-einsamkeit asked: I've heard a lot of things about "When Nietzsche Wept" and I still don't know for sure if that is a good reading. I'm open for judgement but I don't believe in books ABOUT Nietzsche, if you know what I mean. Have you read it? What do you think about it? Btw, where are you from? =)
I actually haven’t heard too much about it good or bad, and I haven’t read it or seen the movie (maybe I should?). I imagine any novel that can get made into a movie must take liberties in focus to preserve an interesting plot, though.
I think Lou Salome herself wrote a biography on Nietzsche, which might be interesting as they actually did know each other very well. I’ve read excerpts of that though, and it’s not an easy read…
As to where I’m from— I’m Canadian, although I currently live in New York City.
