Aside: Recommended Reading: A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

I absolutely loved A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. A writer living on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia finds a package washed ashore from Japan containing a diary and becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to the teenage girl who wrote it. This novel has all the elements I enjoy, if done well: story within a story; fabulous settings; a writer character; the multiverse; a slipstream quality; and even Buddhism.
