A brilliant, unforgettable novel from bestselling author Ruth Ozeki—shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award “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.” In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived more than a century. A diary is Nao’s only solace—and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine. Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox—possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future. Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.

Ever since Ezra Pound's exhortation to 'make it new', experimentation has been a hallmark of contemporary literature. Ranging from the modernists, through the Beats to postmodernism and contemporary 'hyperfiction', this is a unique introduction to experimental fiction. Creative exercises throughout the book help students grapple with the many varieties of experimental fiction for themselves, deepening their understanding of these many forms and developing their own writing skills. In addition, the book examines the historical contexts and major themes of 20th-century experimental fiction and new directions for the novel offered by writers such as David Shields and Zadie Smith. Making often difficult works accessible for the first time reader and with extensive further reading guides, Experimental Fiction is an essential practical guidebook for students of creative writing and contemporary fiction. Writers covered include: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, Marcel Proust, Ralph Ellison, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William Gibson, Italo Calvino, Jeanette Winterson, Don Delillo, Caitlin Fisher, Geoff Ryeman, Xiaolu Guo, Tom McCarthy, James Frey and David Mitchell.

Alan's true story picks up after his parole from Trenton State Prison where he served 27 months of a 3 to 5 year sentence for possession and sale of drugs. He thought he had his drug addiction problems beaten. He felt that alcohol without drugs would provide him the relief that he needed from his anxiety and depression. He started becoming more and more reliant on alcohol as the days passed. His social anxiety was so great that he could not participate in conversations in a group context. His alcoholic life was a whirlwind of brief sexual encounters and drinking at bars in Greenwich Village. His sexual identity was non-existent. He had no sexual preference of a female over a male or vice-versa. Alan was just getting started on his academic career as a free man. He had taken his first 4 college courses in prison and was determined to earn at least a bachelor's degree. In no time at all he was consuming alcohol before every social gathering whether it was at home, at work or on the university campus. Alan appeared aloof to many acquaintances, but his quiet nature was due to his intense anxiety levels and sporadic depression. The years advance and Alan chronicles the huge impact alcoholism has on his life and his urgent attempts to work towards solutions to his inner turmoil. As his alcoholism progresses, he gets closer and closer to losing everything he's worked and strived for. His personal relationships are falling apart. His work on the job is suffering and his relationships with co-workers are becoming stressed. He needs a solution and he needs it now.
