Summary Recreating the early Civil Rights era, Newman's memoir is a pitch-perfect account of the improbable friendship that developed between mathematician James Newman, friend of Albert Einstein and father of two, and his employee Jenniemae--an illiterate, numbers-savvy maid whom James recruited to take care of his affluent Washington, D.C., home.
