Mathematics

Book - 2012
Rate this:
The third "branch" of Jacques Roubaud's epic, Proustian Great fire of London, Mathematics: (a novel) is also an excellent entrance point into the series. Adopting math as a career relatively late in his studies, Roubaud here narrates his difficulties both personal and pedagogical, while also investigating the role of mathematics in his life as a remedy to all the messiness of lived experience. A riveting and humorous anecdotal memoir as well as a fiendishly digressive fiction about the functions of memory and the written word--Cover p. [4].
