"A wonderful cocktail of mathematics and delicate personal interactions. A housekeeper is assigned to care for a mathematics professor who has a memory capacity of 80 minutes since a traffic accident. They learn to communicate mostly through numbers and patterns and create a very special relationship, described by Ogawa in a very elegant way."

- Simone, Fiction section buyer in ABC The Hague
 
"Hilarious, sad and brilliant novel about a young grieving graduate student who decides she just wants to sleep for the entire year.
I almost read it in one go, if it weren't for my own need to get some sleep every once in a while. ."
