Summer Reading — Math Novels

Linda Gojak, the President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, has put out her summer math reading list. I love that she included A Wrinkle in Time and The Phantom Tollbooth, both well-written novels that include mathematical ideas (though I normally don’t like science fiction).  Favorites of mine in this category are The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers, The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon.

I’m intrigued by An Invisible Sign of My Own, by Aimee Bender.  Any recommendations to add?
