UW campus community digs into “A Tale for the Time Being”
The new novel from the critically acclaimed and best-selling author is the selection for the fifth year of Go Big Read, UW-Madison’s common-reading program.

Ozeki’s novel, which also made the shortlist for this year’s Man Booker Prize, hooked Go Big Read selection committee members with the inventive narrative that alternates between two characters.
