Ray Monk's writing:a conversation

Have you read many books by Ray Monk?
No,Have you?
Only one,but I’ve read it seven times so far.
That’s value for money!Why seven,is it some thing you have about numero septimus?
No,I just couldn’t understand it at first!
So why did you persist?
Well,it is written so beautifully and also I like lives!
Style over substance!
No,it has both.Unusually.
What’s it about then,detectives?
No,I don’t read those seven times.It’s the biography of Wittgenstein.
How long did it take you?
Five years!
Are you a philosopher?

Well,I am now.
