The Housekeeper and the Professor: Vintage Classics Japanese Series [9781784875442]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

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.
AUTHOR: Yoko Ogawa (Author) Yoko Ogawa has won every major Japanese literary award. Her fiction has appeared in the New Yorker, A Public Space and Zoetrope. Her works include The Diving Pool, a collection of three novellas, The Housekeeper and the Professor, Hotel Iris and Revenge.
