The Indian Clerk by David Leavitt
The Indian Clerk is based on true events and set in the early 20th century. G. H. Hardy, a Cambridge don, is one of the world's foremost mathematicians, and receives letters from an account clerk in India, Srinivasa Ramanujan. Ramanujan's genius is unrecognized in his own country, so Hardy arranges for him to come to England. Hardy was the type of man who could immerse himself in his studies while being inept at domestic life. Ramanujan, freed from Indian colonial and cultural constraints, finds England to be an ill fit for him despite having his mathematical skills prized. These two men try to forge a relationship as World War I threatens to undo everything. David Leavitt's book has received mostly positive reviews with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette saying, "This novel is brilliant. It is a beautiful and creative work that manages to portray a melange of the literary, historical, romantic and academic, with breathtaking prose and deeply nuanced characters."
