Product description

Review

"Highly original. Infinitely charming. And ever so touching." (Paul Auster)

"A perfectly sustained novel (a tribute to Stephen Snyder's smooth translation); like a note prolonged...a pause enabling us to peer intently into the lives of its characters...has all the charm and restraint of any by Ishiguro and the whimsy of Murakami" (Los Angeles Times)

"Beautiful...the extraordinary Yoko Ogawa casts her spell. Never before has the beauty of maths been so lovingly explored...a tender, gentle book...Ogawa is an original and establishes a world in a paragraph..This is a tale which will leave the reader gasping...Hopefully more of her exciting, thoughtful fiction is heading our way." (Irish Times)

"Its unnamed characters suggest archetype or myth; its rapturous concentration on the details of weather and cooking provide a satisfyingly textured foundation" (Guardian)

"Alive with mysteries both mathematical and personal, this novel has the pared-down elegance of an equation" (Oprah magazine)

Book Description

An enchanting story about what it means to live in the present, and about the curious equations that can create a family where one before did not exist.
