About the Author: Yōko Ogawa

Y ko Ogawa was born in Okayama, Okayama Prefecture, graduated from Waseda University, and lives in Ashiya Since 1988, she has publishedthan twenty works of fiction and nonfiction Her novel The Professor and his Beloved Equation has been made into a movie In 2006 she co authored An Introduction to the World s Most Elegant Mathematics with Masahiko Fujiwara, a mathematician, as a dialogue on the extraordinary beauty of numbers.A film in French, L Annulaire The Ringfinger , directed by Diane Bertrand, starring Olga Kurylenko and Marc Barb , was released in France in June 2005 and subsequently made the rounds of the international film festivals the film, some of which is filmed in the Hamburg docks, is based in part on Ogawa s Kusuriyubi no hy hon , translated into French as L Annulaire by Rose Marie Makino Fayolle who has translated numerous works by Ogawa, as well as works by Akira Yoshimura and by Ranpo Edogawa, into French.Kenzabur e has said, Y ko Ogawa is able to give expression to the most subtle workings of human psychology in prose that is gentle yet penetrating The subtlety in part lies in the fact that Ogawa s characters often seem not to know why they are doing what they are doing She works by accumulation of detail, a technique that is perhapssuccessful in her shorter works the slow pace of development in the longer works requires something of a deus ex machina to end them The reader is presented with an acute description of what the protagonists, mostly but not always female, observe and feel and their somewhat alienated self observations, some of which is a reflection of Japanese society and especially women s roles within in it The tone of her works varies, across the works and sometimes within the longer works, from the surreal, through the grotesque and the sometimes grotesquely humorous, to the psychologically ambiguous and even disturbing.

    This is a beautifully written, elegant little book about an old man, a maths professor, his housekeeper and her young son The professor s memory post 1975 is only 80 minutes long, so everything is fresh and new to him all the time, including the news his memory is only 80 minutes long The housekeeper has her own problems but finds fulfillment in the relationship, ever renewed, between her son and the professor and her growing love for math
