Anmeldelser

«Strange in the best sense, plus funny, moving and deeply wise»

* San Francisco Chronicle *

«The Face, as with the best of literary nonfiction, incorporates elements of memoir and essay, conjecture and meditation, allowing the reader to accompany each author as [she] creates a text that is utterly unique and universally affecting . . . funny, sad and profound»

* Los Angeles Review of Books *

«Throughout Ozeki's essay her refreshing and cultivated wisdom leads us through the mind of a compassionate, grounded human and a writer of real integrity»

* Electric Literature *

«One of those perfect books you can read in an afternoon, but think about for days and days afterward»

* Book Riot *

«Praise for The Book of Form and Emptiness: Heart-breaking and heart-healing - a book to not only keep us absorbed but also to help us think and love and live and listen. No one writes quite like Ruth Ozeki and The Book of Form and Emptiness is a triumph»

MATT HAIG

«Praise for A Tale for the Time Being: This is one of the most deeply moving and thought-provoking novels I have read in a long time. In precise and luminous prose, Ozeki captures both the sweep and detail of our shared humanity, moving seamlessly between Nao's story and our own»

MADELINE MILLER

«A triumph . . . Ozeki explores what it means to be human in this moment, right now (Nao). Her novel is saturated with love, ideas and compassion. In short, an absolute treat»

* Sunday Times *

«A Tale for the Time Being is a timeless story. Ruth Ozeki beautifully renders not only the devastation of the collision between man and the natural world, but also the often miraculous results of it. She is a deeply intelligent and humane writer who offers her insights with a grace that beguiles. I truly love this novel»

ALICE SEBOLD

«Ingenious and touching, A Tale for the Time Being is also highly readable. And interesting: the contrast of cultures is especially well done»

PHILIP PULLMAN

«A beautifully interwoven novel about magic and loss and the incomprehensible threads that connect our lives. I just finished it, and loved it»
