Ruth Ozeki writes ‘A Tale for the Time Being’

I had never read anything by Ruth Ozeki until I picked up her latest novel, “A Tale for the Time Being,” and found a book that kept me thinking long after I put it away. A writer living on a British Columbia island (not unlike Ruth Ozeki) picks up the diary of a Japanese teenager that has washed ashore, perhaps residue from the tsunami. Using this premise, Ozeki dives into a multilayered story that includes everything from teenage bullying to Zen Buddhism. This novel was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize – Seattle Times reviewer Wingate Packard called it “terrific.”

Ozeki appears tonight on Well Read, the books and authors program on state public affairs network TVW. The interview airs at 7 and 10 p.m. (in Seattle, on Comcast cable channel 23).  Or you can watch it here. For more information, here’s that Seattle Times review.
