The Housekeeper and the Professor

Yoko Ogawa

I loved this book.

It’s a translation from Ogawa’s Japanese.

She’s an accomplished author and has had a lot of her work published in the US.

This seemingly simple book asks so many questions about love and memory and what’s important in life.

AND, woven through the text are some fascinating bits on numbers, whole numbers, math theories, and the application of math theory to everyday events.

I took this book to my oldest grandchild as I think he will appreciate the story, thinking theoretically about a subject, and the math theories.
