The Housekeeper and the Professor : Vintage Classics Japanese Series Paperback / softback
by Yoko Ogawa
Part of the Vintage Classic Japanese Series series
VINTAGE JAPANESE CLASSICS - five masterpieces of Japanese fiction in gorgeous new gift editions. Each morning, the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to one another.
The Professor may not remember what he had for breakfast, but his mind is still alive with elegant mathematical equations from the past.
He devises clever maths riddles - based on her shoe size or her birthday - and the numbers reveal a sheltering and poetic world to both the Housekeeper and her ten-year-old son.
With each new equation, the three lost souls forge an affection more mysterious than imaginary numbers, and a bond that runs deeper than memory.
