careful, considerate writer who obviously insists on writing what she wants to write and in the fashion she prefers That special care and concern are also detectable in her latest novel, an intriguing, even beautiful narrative remarkable for its unusual but attentively structured plot Ruththe character Ruthis a writer living in a remote corner of the Pacific coast of British Columbia who is currently thwarted by writers block as she attempts to compose a memoir One day she finds a collection of materials contained in a lunchbox that has washed up on the beach As if she has unleashed a magical mist, the items she finds inside, namely a journal and a collection of letters, envelop her in the detailsthe dramasof someone elses life The life she has stumbled into is that of a Japanese teenager, who, believing suicide is the only relief for her teenage angst, nevertheless is determined, before she commits that final act, to write down the story of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun We go from one story line to the other, back and forth across the Pacific, but the reader never loses place or interest HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY The publisher is in love with this novel and will do everything from providing an author tour to presenting extensive radio and online publicity campaigns to bring its virtues to a wide reading audience Brad Hoopera masterpiece, pure and simple Kirkus ReviewsSaturated with love, ideas and compassion It is, in short, an absolute treat The Sunday Times UK Like a wise but playful teacher, Ozeki guides us through her latest novel by periodically questioning what we know of the story and how we know itThis book pays its deepest homage to Marcel Prousts In Search of Lost Time, but it also shares much in common with the books of Kurt Vonnegut and Robert Anton Wilson Like them, Ozeki manages to turn existential conundrums into a playful, joyful and pleasantly mind bending dialogue between reader and writer Globe and MailIn clever and deeply affecting ways, Ruth Ozekis luminous new novel explores notions of duality, causation, honour, and time Quill Ozeki has great fun in this novelFiction and non fiction blend and dissolve, creating an intriguing, fluid form of storytelling Chatelaine A Tale for the Time Being is a timeless story Ruth Ozeki beautifully renders not only the devastation of the collision between man and the natural world, but also the often miraculous results of it She is a deeply intelligent and humane writer who offers her insights with a grace that beguiles I truly love this novel Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones A Tale for the Time Being is equal parts mystery and meditation The mystery is a compulsive, gritty page turner The meditationon time and memory, on the oceanic movement of history, on impermanence and uncertainty, but also resilience and braveryis deep and gorgeous and wise A completely satisfying, continually surprising, wholly remarkable achievement, this is a book to be read and reread Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book ClubThere is far too much to say about this remarkable and ambitious book in a few sentences This is for real and not just another hyped up blurb A Tale for the Time Being is a great achievement, and it is the work of a writer at the height of her powers Ruth Ozeki has not only reinvigorated the novel itself, the form, but shes given us the tried and true, deep and essential pleasure of characters we love and who matter Jane Hamilton, author of A Map of the WorldIngenious and touching, A Tale for the Time Being is also highly readable And interesting the contrast of cultures is especially well done I greatly look forward to Ruth Ozekis next book Philip Pullman, New York Times bestselling author of His Darkest Materials
