A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

9780143124870A Tale for the Time Being
by Ruth Ozeki
(pub. 2/13)

This novel is rather a masterpiece I think. Ruth lives on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest and discovers Nao’s barnacle-encrusted diary in a plastic bag, fresh out of the surf–special delivery from Japan. The diary winds the two together inextricably, as if tangled in seaweed, along with the reader. What is the meaning of Nao? And how are we all “time beings”?
