|A gifted artist suffering from leprosy encounters Tamara Browne, a quirky
former math grad student who is interested in "humanistic mathematics".
"While this book is not based on mathematics, it is sprinkled with
numberous references to Tamara Browne's humanistic mathematics. [For
example,] as a
graduate student, Tamara began to understand that all of life could be seen
as an equation and `since every equation needed human beings for its very
existence, these humans should choose very carefully the equations they
wished to bring into being by starting with the end they desired and
building the equation around that desired end.'

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
