|A fictional character obsessed with symmetry is forced by horrific circumstances to travel around Europe in the early 20th century where he meets famous mathematicians, relatives of famous mathematicians, and the artist M.C. Escher.|
This novel was published in Greek and (AFAIK) it has not yet been translated into any other languages. Since I cannot read Greek, I must admit that I have not read this book myself. I am grateful to Vijay Fafat for bringing it to my attention.

Exciting News: The total number of works of mathematical fiction listed in this database recently reached a milestone. The 1,500th entry is The Man of Forty Crowns by Voltaire. Thanks to Vijay Fafat for writing the summary of that work (and so many others). I am also grateful to everyone who has contributed to this website. Heck, I'm grateful to everyone who visited the site. Thank you!
