When Leonard Michaels passed away, he was writing a series of stories about a mathematician named Nachman. Nachman is a quirky loner, a prominent mathematician and university professor who has almost no friends, no hobbies, no acquaintances, no Math buddies, and no ambitions outside solving math problems. But he isn't sad or pitiable. He's comical and over-the-top, and strangely endearing.

I love Nachman. I love Leonard Michael's prose. These stories are less experimental and more prosaic than Michael's earlier fiction, but I love these the most. ( )
