This is an inspiring tale of a scholarly pursuit that reads like an adventurous thriller. In 1913 a young, unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G.H. Hardy, begging the preeminent English mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers and setting in motion one of the most productive collaborations ever chronicled. "An exquisite portrait".--Los Angeles Times. With a passion for detail, Robert Kanigel takes us from to the slums of Madras to the courts of Cambridge University where Srinivasa Ramanujan, a young unschooled Indian clerk, tested his brilliant theories alongside G.H. Hardy, the great English mathematician. Ramanujan died at the age of thirty-two, but he left behind a magical and inspired legacy that is still being plumbed for its secrets today.
