      "She'd written, 'Up, down, same thing.' And then later when they were at the beach, Jiko said those exact same words … 'up, down, same thing.' I had that dream over a week before I read about the beach, so how did I know that?" -- from "A Tale For The Time Being: a novel" by Ruth Ozeki (p. 230)

    • Alicia Childress

      A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki This gorgeous and intricate novel tells the story of a novelist living in the Pacific Northwest who discovers a teenaged Japanese girl's diary that has washed ashore. The story moves back and forth between the two narratives, and it's easy to imagine a small-screen adaptation that slowly unravels the mystery of the girl who penned the diary.

    • Frogen Yozurt

      A brilliant, unforgettable, and long-awaited novel from bestselling author Ruth Ozeki. Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.

But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great-grandmother, a Buddhist nun who's lived more than a century.

    • New York Council for the Humanities

    • Laci Long

      Book #40 was A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. This is a philosophical novel, a coming-of-age novel, a mystery novel sprinkled with a dash of magic realism. It’s about a japanese girl and a woman in British Columbia who is drawn into the story after discovering the girl’s diary. This book covers so much ground, but never loses its focus. It covers bullying, child prostitution, depression, suicide, and more. The story manages to be heart breaking and optimistic at the same time. Read it!
