Overview of the audiobook A Tale for the Time Being

“A time being is somebody who lives in time, and which means you, and me, and each one in all us who’s, or was, or ever shall be.”

In Tokyo, 16-year-old Nao has determined there’s just one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But earlier than she ends all of it, Nao first plans to doc the lifetime of her nice grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived greater than a century. A diary is Nao’s solely solace – and can contact lives in methods she will be able to scarcely think about.

Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist residing on a distant island who discovers a set of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox – probably particles from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the thriller of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the previous, into Nao’s drama and her unknown destiny, and ahead into her personal future.

Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between author and listener, previous and current, reality and fiction, quantum physics, historical past, and delusion, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly ingenious, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for residence.
