A Tale for the Time Being is a metafictional novel by Ruth Ozeki narrated by two characters, a sixteen-year-old Japanese American girl in Tokyo who keeps a diary, and a Japanese American writer living on an island off British Columbia who finds the diary washed up on shore some time after the tsunami that devastated Japan. Nao, a Japanese American second generation or a teenage native Californian girl, experiences the pain and discomfort of being uprooted from her home in Silicon Valley after her father loses his job, prompting her family's move back to Tokyo. Identifying as an American, feeling like "an ordinary California girl adopted by Japanese parents," she feels alienated in her new environment and finds it difficult to relate to the Japanese part of her identity. Identifying more as an American, she feels a complete discord with her surroundings, and feels as if her "life is unreal, and Sunnyvale, which was real, was a jillion miles away in time and space, like the beautiful Earth from outer space. Her foreignness in Japan, as an American, causes relentless bullying from her classmates at a public Japanese school. Not only does she have to grapple with her own social struggles, Nao is also plagued with an unhappy family life. Her father, unable to find a job in Japan, falls into a state of depression — withdrawing from the world and going into a state of social seclusion, or hikikomori — and attempts suicide twice.
