Ruth Ozeki is a novelist, filmmaker, and Zen Buddhist priest whose award-winning books are witty, intelligent, and passionate. Her first novel, My Year of Meats, is a poignant, funny tale about global meat and media production. All Over Creation features a family farmer, his prodigal daughter, an itinerant gang of environmental activists, and a New Age corporate spin-doctor whose lives and interests collide in Liberty Falls, Idaho.
Her most recent novel, A Tale for the Time-Being, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize; it tells the story of a mysterious diary which washes up on a beach on the Pacific Northwest coast of Canada in the wake of the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
