Overview: A Tale for the Time Being

A Tale for the Time Being is a beautiful piece of contemporary fiction written by Ruth Ozeki. It is the story of a girl called Nao just the way she pens it down in her diary. The diary is as extraordinary as the story of Nao. It rides through the waves of a tsunami and makes its way across the ocean.

The diary contains the story of Nao's great grandmother where Nao is trying to connect to her past and culture. She explains, in an exquisite manner, the details about the devastation caused when man interacts with nature in an unacceptable way. It is a highly interesting, thought provoking novel that portrays the contrast between the cultures in a very commendable fashion. The story is deep and moving and the prose in the book connects to the life of not just Nao but also our own. Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love) has said that it is a 'novel about magic and loss and the incomprehensible threads that connect our lives'.

The book A Tale for the Time Being is Ruth Ozeki's third novel. It has won the 2013 Independent Booksellers Book Award and the Kitchies Red Tentacle Award. It was also shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013 and the National Book Critics Award for Fiction.

Ozeki is part American and part Japanese. She was raised in Connecticut and in constantly travels between British Columbia and New York. Other books authored by Ozeki are My Year of Meats and All Over Creation.
