A good read transcends into the eternal, melding the real now with a timeless present. Ruth Ozeki’s “A Tale for the Time Being” is all that and more: a quietly amazing achievement, a careful construct bridging quantum physics and the role of the reader/observer, a Zen eternity of multiple realities within a single I-novel/not a novel.

Ozeki, an ordained Buddhist priest, leaves unmistakable biographical fingerprints within her masterpiece, but that’s just one of the book’s essences. Her layered strands of mind-candy weave to form a good read that reverberates in thought long after the final page.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
