A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines by Janna Levin

Kurt Godels Incompleteness Theorems sent shivers through Viennas intellectual circles and directly challenged Ludwig Wittgensteins dominant philosophy. Alan Turings mathematical genius helped him break the Nazi Enigma Code during WWII. Though they never met, their lives strangely mirrored one another--both were brilliant, and both met with tragic ends. Here, a mysterious narrator intertwines these parallel lives into a double helix of genius and anguish, wonderfully capturing not only two radiant, fragile minds but also the zeitgeist of the era.
