Happy Birthday, I. M. Pei!


Dear I. M.,

Happy 87th Birthday! I.M., I have an awkward request: For the last twenty-nine years, I’ve been calculating pi (π) to eight-hundred-million places. I’m finally tired of it, so I’ve stopped. The last digit is a 4. Anyway, these days I’m writing my autobiography, which is about 13 pages of prose and 952 pages of pi’s digits. Its title is I Am π. By now you must realize I’m writing to ask if you’d do me the honor of writing the introduction to my book. Don’t you think that’d be neat?

Thanks in advance.

Your pal,
