Ruth Ozeki is a Canadian-American novelist, filmmaker, and Zen Buddhist priest. Her new novel, A Tale for the Time Being, was published in March by Viking. She is also the author of My Year of Meats and All Over Creation.
“A time being is someone who lives in time, and that means you, and me, and every one of us who is, or was, or ever will be.” — from the novel
“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.” — from the book jacket.
