The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa

The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa

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.

  1. I loved this book. Read it twice. It is one of those books I think of occasionally in quiet times. I’ll read it again. Wonderful story and heart.

    Sorry not one Barbara Pym book made it.

    But Kathy – what an effort you and the staff made to put this online. Great work really. I mean really.

    As always, the only line item on my Cook County property tax bill I can appreciate is the Library.

    Thank you so much.

  2. Barb, thank you for your kind words. I hope you find more books you can enjoy amongst these pages.
