If you are one of the many readers who loved A Tale for the Time Being, then you are in luck. Ruth Ozeki has written another powerful novel that draws readers in with its sympathetic characters, surprising events, and creative approaches to familiar themes. Teenager Benny Oh begins to hear voices in his head after the death of his beloved father. The reaction of his school and the medical establishment to his struggles stands in stark contrast to the support that he finds among some of the more eccentric patrons at city library.
