Ruth Ozeki

The Booker Prize-shortlisted author of A Tale for the Time Being returns. Centred on 13 year old Benny Oh after the death of his beloved father, The Book of Form and Emptiness is both a vivid portrait of a small family enduring unimaginable loss, and a powerful meditation on how books can provide meaning and order in a tumultuous world. With early admirers including Dave Eggers, Matt Haig and David Mitchell (the latter of whom said: ‘if you’ve lost your way with fiction…let The Book of Form and Emptiness light your way home’), it is hotly tipped to be one of 2021’s biggest books. Chaired by Alex Clark.
