Title: The Housekeeper and the Professor
Author: Yoko Ogawa
Call #: OGA
This beautiful little novel about a genius math professor whose memory only lasts 80 minutes and the housekeeper who cares for him is sweet, heartbreaking and surprisingly insightful. Although it has a lot of information about math and baseball, Ogawa’s writing is so lovely that it isn’t necessary to have interest in these subjects to enjoy the story.
