He is a brilliant maths professor with a peculiar problem – ever since a traumatic head injury seventeen years ago, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory.

Really enjoyed this beautifully translated, gentle, touching story about a housekeeper, her son and a mathematics professor. Learned lots about, maths too!
