The Housekeeper and the Professor - Yoko Ogawa

Honestly, I saw that this was another novel about a mathematician and I figured “I’m already on a roll ….” That was my entire reason for reading this book (that, and the good reviews). It’s a quiet novel, simple. A woman becomes a housekeeper for a difficult client - a mathematician whose memory resets every 80 minutes.

The characters are well-drawn and you can’t help but feel affection for each of them.

Math. Baseball. Mystery.

The reviews all say things like “charming”, “gem”, “elegant” and words to that effect - and they’re right. 

What’s Next?

Something 2017y, buzzy.
