A Tale for the Time Being
“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…”
Spanning the planet from Tokyo’s Electric Town to Desolation Sound, British Columbia, and connected by the great Pacific gyres, A Tale for the Time Being tells the story of a diary washed ashore inside a Hello Kitty lunchbox and the profound effect it has on the woman who discovers it.
“Ozeki is one of my favorite novelists and here she is at her absolute best—bewitching, intelligent, hilarious, and heartbreaking, often on the same page.”
~Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
