In 1913, a young, unschooled Indian clerk wrote a letter to G. H. Hardy, begging the pre-eminent English mathematician's opinion on several ideas he had about numbers. The letter revealed the mind of a mathematical genius and led to one of the most remarkable collaborations of the twentieth century.

"Superby evocative....thoroughly of the most romantic stories in the history of mathematics."- New York Times
