    Happy Cubs opening day 2018 has not been the reading year I had planned on so far Real life and the stress that goes with it have gotten in the way of being able to focus on reading Hopefully that changes In the meantime in honor of the Cubs first home game this year, I am reposting my favorite baseball book from last year, a lovely novella that I am fortunate did not fly under my radar The Housekeeper and the Professor was recommended to me by my Goodreads friend Diane because she knows that I love baseball This March, Japan is participating in the World Baseball Classic so I found this slim novel to be a timely read Yoko Ogawa has been a leading Japanese novelist for twenty years In this touching story, she creates a family out of a housekeeper, her ten year old son, and the math professor whose cottage they were asked to tend to The Professor is a math genius, but seventeen years prior to the events of this novel he suffered brain trauma in an accident As a result his short term memory is only 80 minutes long, and he clips notes to his suit in order to remember important information Fortunately, the math theorems for which he earned a PhD and many honors as well as his ability to teach them remain intact Yet, despite this brilliant mind, he is unable to care for himself because of the memory loss and requires a full time Housekeeper to assist him at home The Housekeeper is a single mothe...

    Life by the NumbersNumbers are everywhere Real, Natural, Imaginary, Perfect, Amicable, Abundant, Deficient, Triangular, Prime including both Mersenne and Pernicious as well as Twins to name a few And they re all here in The Housekeeper and the Professor, which Ms Ogawa wrote in 2007 The Professor is of mathematics and has amnesia the housekeeper is devoted and has a son This melange constitutes the cast of a charming story of mathematics and love, subjects with a connection that is less than obvious But there is a connection and it is fundamental and profound For a mathematician, defined by intensity of temperament not level of education, numbers are not simply classified as kinds or types They are living species with distinctive genetic characteristics, with real family resemblances and lasting relationships, indeed with personalities Some are rare, some shy, some awkward, some maddeningly unpredictable Some may be hidden in infinity, some are waiting, desperate to be identified, and some may even be the last of their line, but we can t be sure The ultimate mathematical accolade afforded to any number is to give it a family name, a formula by which all its relatives can be identified, even those we haven t met yet Thus the sum of all the numbers from 1 to 10 equals 55 But that is just this number s first name, as it were It s family name is n n 1 2 n All the numbers, 1 to n, in this family are related to e...

    On originally reading a description of this novel I wondered if it was really for me Did I want to read about a Professor with a memory span of 80 minutes and the Housekeeper who assists him I m so glad I decided to read it and I m happy to have my own copy This story of memory, math, building a pseudo family where no relationship has existed before is full of love and compassion The emotions are mostly expressed in mathematical theorems, cooking and random touch, but it is palpable throughout the book I had to remind myself repeatedly that this is a novel, not a memoir It feels like life, a life beautifully lived The emotions are still high as I write this review.The blending of the math into the arc of life is amazing I am a math phobe and always have been I could feel my resistance wearing down while reading and a subtle understanding of why others love the world of numbers beginning to grow The Professor, and the housekeeper, would be please...

    Amicable numbers pair of keyrings Nerd Romance Not that kind of love story, but a sad, sweet story about an unlikely friendship between a brilliant mathematician, his housekeeper and her son There is love just no romance The Professor is 64 years old He suffered a brain injury at age 47 He has an 80 minute retention for new memories ever since his accident He covers his suit in notes to remember new information He loves math, numbers, children and his favorite baseball team, the Hanshin Tigers His favorite player is the legendary strikeout pitcher, Yutaka Enatsu Except for the son who the Professor calls Root because the top of his head is flat like a square root sign none of them have names There is also the Professor s Sister in law or the Widow, she manages the Professor s affairs and hires the Housekeeper The mathematician s personality is usually credited as based on the Hungarian mathematician Paul Erd s 26 March 1913 20 September 1996 , because Erd s biography The Man Who Loved Numbers is in the bibliography Although the disabling injury is strictly Ogawa s Professor, Erd s worked prolifically until his fatal heart a...

    A wonderful, heart warming story about unlikely friendships.and mathand baseball I decided to grab this one for my Japanese reading challenge for 2018 and it was the perfect story to begin reading It s heavy into math, which I must say, I m a bit rusty on I was at one time fascinated by numbers, going to the highest level of math courses in college, and working for my college math professor But thenI just lost interest in numbers as along came computers Nerd The story is of the friendship of the housekeeper and the professor The professor had an accident some number of years ago and his memory only lasts 80 minutes He s quite the sight for the housekeeper, wearing a suit with post it notes pinned all over his suit to remind of things he will soon forget He has his memory prior to the accident, but after that, it only lasts 80 minutes But, he is a math genius and relates everything to math When he first meets his new housekeeper, he asks her shoe size and phone number and recounting the tale of those specific numbers And so begins their daily dance But over time, they have an impact on one another The housekeepers son comes around and the professor helps to teach him, the housekeeper becomes enad by numbers, and they all share their fondness of baseball A unlikely friendship that lasts a lifetime for the three of them...

    The Housekeeper and the Professor is a charming and enjoyable novella about eponymous Professor of mathematics who due to accident years earlier suffers from peculiar form of amnesia and while he remembers everything from the past his current memory lasts only eighty minutes, and as a reminder of this fact he has fitting note pinned to his suit In fact Professor has plenty notes on him that rustle when he walks It also is a story about his housekeeper, young single mother and her son named by Professor, in honor of root sign since his head is flat, Root And finally the story revolves about numbers, whole range of numbers Prime, natural, amicable, perfect, triangular and so on.Well, being myself mathematical dimwit I didn t think reading about equations, proofs and Fermat Last Theorem could be so engaging For Professor numbers are comforting and solving some mathematical puzzle leaves him peaceful and at ease And these passages devoted to the beauty of mathematics I found especially captivating In mathematics i...

    An enjoyable Japanese novel that scatters numbers, and facts about the brain, though it s primarily about friendship It feels light, but prompts profound questions.The sitThe eponymous housekeeper is a young single mother herself the only child of a single mother with a ten year old son She becomes daily housekeeper to a former maths professor whose head injury in 1975 means he only remembers the most recent 80 minutes, plus things before 1975, nearly 20 years before the story is set 1992.Numbers are now the professor s life He works on problems for magazine competitions, and he comes alive when he spots numbers or patterns to explain to his increasingly interested housekeeper When he discovers his housekeeper has a son, he is adamant that the boy must come to the house after school and in the holidays he adores children, and thinks their needs or his exaggerated perception of them are important than anything else Thus a relationship is built between the prof and the boy nicknamed Root as in square root , based on numbers and baseball statistics His short memory span makes him an incredibly patient teacher.Despite all the notes, he has to start each day, each situation, anew The hire and fire nature of a housekeeping agency has parallels The practicalities and humour of coping with the prof s condition are well portrayed, and the relationships are very touching The questionsDespite the efforts of the housekeeper and her son, the professor s...

    With only 192 pages, it is a breeze A delightful pause A little gem of fantasmagoric proportions An ode to maths And a Dennis The Menace moment in nostalgia The Dennis The Menace moment view spoiler I feel a bit of remorse about that one Not enough though, sad to say It was the end of tenth grade The last day in math class Our Hitleresque teacher, with her wooden ruler with the metal strip on the one side, enjoyed a sadistic pleasure in wrapping us over our knuckles with the metal side if we did not know the answers to her questions in maths class Usually we did know it, but was scared out of our wits and could not get any sound out She did that for three years with everyone crossing the threshold of all her classes Girls school tyranny She was the only one with those tendencies, though Her loud, shrill, grating voice scared any joy in maths out of our existence That day, when she asked us who wanted to continue with maths, I thought it was time I pushed my hand into the air, confident and smiling right around my head I was the only one grinning the daylights out of her Mrs Terror burst out in tears Right there Nobody ever dared look her in the eyes I kept on smi...

    Everyone and their mother read this last year for Women in Translation month August 2016 , and I remember finding my own copy at the annual literacy book sale I set it aside for WIT month this year and was happy to pull it back out.The housekeeper is a single parent, trying to make enough to live on, and the professor is a mathematician with a failing memory The story is about connection and care but also MATH and anyone who knows me knows I m a sucker for math The professor can t remember past 80 minutes and tries to attach little slips of paper with the important details to his robe But he can still think in math, so that is how he connects to the people around him.He refers to the housekeeper s son as Root because of the shape of his hair, the flat top of the square root symbol.I ...

    This is a beautifully written, elegant little book about an old man, a maths professor, his housekeeper and her young son The professor s memory post 1975 is only 80 minutes long, so everything is fresh and new to him all the time, including the news his memory is only 80 minutes long The housekeeper has her own problems but finds fulfillment in the relationship, ever renewed, between her son and the professor and her growing love for mathematics It is a mark of the author s writing that the fourth character, the linchpin of the story remains in the shadows but no on that, otherwise I d have to mark this with a spoiler flag.The book is a short read, mesmerising in its intensity and absolutely unique, I ve never read another book even slightly like this one Certainly I ve never read anything about logarithms, mathematical conjectures and proofs that I ever ev...
