"the housekeeper and the professor"

my take: i ordered this without really having any idea what it was about. when checking out on amazon this was a suggested read (people who read this also read...)

somehow i didn't clue into the fact that it's a translation from Japanese. the author could have been american .... it started out talking a bit about baseball, so i imagined it in the U.S. ... until i realized the team names weren't all lining up.

the beauty of mathematics, baseball, and kindness are the main subjects of this very quiet and interesting novel....something completely different.

my source: amazon suggestion

my take: quiet, good read

  1. I saw this in the Indie Bookseller pamphlet some time ago, and it's been one of those on my "to read" list for a long time that's never managed to make its way to the top... sounds like it might be worth pursuing.
