Sophie leant me this book and a cried. I tend to cry over Japanese people in Japanese stories anyway, I think because it's so easy for tiny little movements to be so moving. Anyway, it was a lovely new way to consider math and memory and life. Though I did think there were some opportunities to have the math become just a little more meaningful to the housekeeper and Sophie and I both agreed that there could have been more plants and landscape.
