All Over Creation by Ruth Ozeki

All Over Creation - Ruth Ozeki

Such a lovely book from the author of "My Year of Meats," which I also enjoyed. This more than makes up for the last several books I read that were rather disappointing. It was an interesting story full of interesting characters, both good and bad, and it was all well-written. Excellent!
