Description:

He is a brilliant math professor, with a peculiarn problem--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 him. And between them a strange, beautiful relationship blossoms. Though the professor can hold new memories for only eighty mintues, his mind is still alive with elegant equations from the past; and through him, the numbers, in all of their articulate order, reveal a sheltering and poetic world to both the housekeeper and her son.The Housekeeper and the Professoris 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.
