A math teacher realizes that the father of one of his students is a man with whom he has had an anonymous sexual relationship. There is some discussion of math education in general, and about hypothetical questions involving fractions in particular (e.g. "Say onethird of the kids in the room have brown eyes and onehalf have blue eyesâ€”what fraction would have eyes that are neither brown nor blue?"). However, the story is less mathematical than it may at first seem since the father's response, seemingly about mathematics, is not actually about mathematics at all.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks!
