Ruth Ozeki’s wonderfully inventive third novel, A Tale for the Time Being, is our March cover story and quite possibly her best work of fiction to date. There are already whispers of this one making the BookPage Best Books of the Year list. . . .
This week, two lucky BookPage readers will find out what we’re so excited about!
Readers who are fascinated by the fiction medium will get a kick out of this genre-bender as Ozeki inserts herself as a character in the story. She finds a Hello Kitty lunchbox on a beach, and inside is the diary of a Tokyo teen, Nao. Read our interview with Ozeki, where she talks about things like “the membrane between fiction and nonfiction.”
TO ENTER: In the comments, share the title of the most imaginative work of fiction you’ve read.
CONTEST DETAILS: Two (2) winners will be chosen by random.org from among entries received by 5 pm CST on Friday, March 15. Each winner will receive one (1) copy of the book listed above. Prizes must be shipped to a North American address, and Rhode Island residents are not eligible. (Full contest rules here.) Good luck!
