The Housekeeper and the Professor
The Housekeeper and the Professor: A Novel | Yoko Ogawa
He is a brilliant math Professor with a peculiar problem--ever since a traumatic head injury, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory. She is an astute young Housekeeper--with a ten-year-old son--who is hired to care for the Professor. And every morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, a strange and beautiful relationship blossoms between them. Though he cannot hold memories for long (his brain is like a tape that begins to erase itself every eighty minutes), the Professor's mind is still alive with elegant equations from the past. And the numbers, in all of their articulate order, reveal a sheltering and poetic world to both the Housekeeper and her young son. The Professor is capable of discovering connections between the simplest of quantities--like the Housekeeper's shoe size--and the universe at large, drawing their lives ever closer and more profoundly together, even as his memory slips away. Yoko Ogawa's The Housekeeper and the Professor is an enchanting story about what it means to live in the present, and about the curious equations that can create a family.

🚨 #dealalert 🚨

Yoko Ogoawa is one of my favorite authors - and one of her books is on sale today for kindle (not sure about other formats). Needless to say I think it‘s a good book... so if you‘ve been meaning to check it out, now is a good time. 😁

DivineDiana It is a good book! 2w
tournevis I love this book so much! 2w
writerlibrarian Such a really, really good book. 🙂🙂 2w
BookNAround This was so good. I keep think I might read her new book only because this was so good because the new book‘s premise doesn‘t really appeal. 2w

"The Housekeeper and The Professor" is a quaint story of how kindness and compassion bring people together. This wasn't my favourite Yōko Ogawa book, but I still enjoyed it - 3 stars.

My full review is up on my blog now ?

Daisey I really enjoyed this one and it is the only book I've read by this author. I would be curious to know which you recommend as I consider another to read. (edited) 3w
whatrebeccasread @Daisey I much preferred both Revenge and Hotel Iris but they definitely have a different style to this one! 3w

This one gets filed under liked but didn‘t love. It is a sweet story about a housekeeper and her son who form lasting bonds with her employer, a professor who only has 80 minutes of short term memory. I love books about the families you choose for yourself but admit that I could have done with less math.

tpixie 80 minutes of memory! Such a difficult life! 3mo

A charming, touching story of a single mother with a young son,who works as a Housekeeper for a mathematics professor in Japan. The Professor has been in an accident ,and only has eighty minutes of short term memory. He and the boy share a love of baseball. This is a photo of the Professor‘s favorite player,Enatsu who still holds the record for strikeouts. I am not a fan of math or baseball (still loved it!),but if you are, all the better!

Slim, spare, and thought-provoking book exploring the relationships between a brain damaged mathematician, his housekeeper, and the housekeeper‘s son. Ogawa packs a lot to think about in a mere 180 pages. Highly recommend.

I finished this yesterday and then took a hike in the woods. Such a good book! It‘s written by a Japanese author and takes place there. It follows, as the title suggests, a professor and his housekeeper. Their story is unique though bc the professor can only remember the previous 80 minutes so each day he meets the housekeeper anew. They have a lovely relationship. Recommend!

The Professor explains that as numbers get bigger, the distance between primes becomes greater until searching for them becomes like wandering through a desert in search of water. This book has some beautiful things to say about mathematical relationships and concepts.

The time period was from back in the days that I followed Baltimore Orioles baseball on the radio. I had never heard of this pitcher in #Japanese #baseball whose pitching record was greater than that of American players. It took this novel for me to learn about Yutaka Enatsu - who was not a fictitious character but rather a legendary baseball #pitcher in #Japan.

Regi_C I love the Tigers! They might have a spectacular losing streak, but those fans always made me feel welcome in the ballpark 9mo

One thing that makes me crazy is when young authors describe older people with one foot in the grave! Being seventy myself, I am acutely aware of this. The author was probably about 23 years old when this novel was published. His 64-year-old protagonist “looked older and somewhat haggard...his back was so badly hunched...the wrinkles on his bony neck...snow-white hair...voice was feeble...movements were slow”. He was in his 60s, not his 90s!

SqueakyChu I know this is just one character, but I find this happens over and over in different novels I read. How very differently age and #aging is seen by those of different ages. I now consider a 64-year-old young! 😄 (edited) 9mo

Swe_Eva Perhaps if it had been written 100+ years ago when people worked their bodies so hard they did age early, but nowadays that age is nothing. 9mo

I decided to read this book for a challenge on #LibraryThing to read a book where the author‘s last name starts with a vowel – A, E, I, O, or U and for this challenge Y is included. I don‘t know anything about this novel other than it has been translated from #Japanese. Its original title was Hakase. I‘ll have to ask my older son what that means.

Amazing book. I fell in love with each character. LOTS of talk about math but don‘t let that scare you. Each problem is explained. Even the stuff you don‘t get is fine, the cadence & love the Professor has is what‘s important. If anything else this author write is half as good it will be excellent. Cassandra Campbell does the narration & gives this a quiet, loving feel that lulls you into the story without putting you to sleep. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I was used to absurd demands from my employers—that I wear a different colour ribbon in my hair every day; that the water for tea be precisely 165 degrees; that I recite a little prayer every evening when Venus rose in the night sky—so the old woman's request struck me as relatively straightforward.

A thoughtful story about friendship and quiet lives. There was a bit too much math for me, but I admired the professor's passion for his subject and the way it allowed him to cope with his impaired memory (90 minutes only). The setting is vivid, following ordinary Japanese lives. The housekeeper is a kind of fictional character I enjoy: earnest and somewhat distant. Authors Helen Humphreys and Jane Urquhart often write about similar people.

Lindy Thank you to Jenny @ReadingEnvy for prompting me to pick up this sweet novel in translation. 😊 2y

I'm getting good return on my reading investment when I learn incidental things about life in another country. In this case, that a new mother is sent home from hospital in Japan with a wooden box containing her baby's umbilical cord; someone will know the number of brushstrokes in her name; students wear name tags at school; attendance at neighbourhood association meetings is expected; slippers are provided at the entrance to some offices. 🇯🇵

English is such a tricky language. I read: "The cherry blossoms are just over in the park and the dogwood is about to bloom." In the movie in my head, I pictured petals all over the ground, but in fact, the characters go out and the cherries are in full bloom. In this case, "just over" means not far away, instead of meaning that the blossoms had just finished. Rewind movie, petals flying back up into the trees.

The housekeeper goes to work for a maths professor whose memory, damaged by an accident, lasts only 80 minutes. He communicates in maths terms: she is less educated but sensitive and non-judgmental, so learns to appreciate his love of numbers. The professor is kind to her son & they share a passion for baseball. Much is unspoken (what was his life like before the accident?), with a gentle message to treat people with respect, not condescension.
