Meet Yumi Fuller. A Japanese-American prodigal daughter, Yumi (aka Yummy) is returning home to the Idaho potato farm she ran away from 25 years earlier.

Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Fiction (unabridged), 2004

Meet Yumi Fuller. A Japanese-American prodigal daughter, Yumi (aka Yummy) is returning home to the Idaho potato farm she ran away from 25 years earlier. Then a freewheeling hippie chick, Yumi is now a fairly responsible parent and a professor with a side gig selling lava lots in Hawaii. But can she possibly be prepared to face her dying father, her Alzheimer's-devastated mother, and Cass, the best friend she left behind?

As she grapples with her conflicted past and uncertain future, Yumi collides with the Seeds of Resistance, a rollicking band of environmentalists who see her parents' potato farm as an ideal in their fight against genetic engineering. With her signature wit and uncanny ability to evoke the pathos and humor of life's conundrums, Ozeki spins a tale of family, food, and corporate greed.

Ruth Ozeki is an award-winning novelist and filmmaker. She is also the author of All Over Creation and, most recently, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013 for A Tale for the Time Being. Ozeki was born and raised in Connecticut, by an American father and Japanese mother. In June 2010 she was ordained as a Zen Buddhist priest. She divides her time between British Columbia and New York.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have listened to most of this book, and still don't know what the point is. There are no peaks or troughs just one monotonic American voice winding along a road picking up characters. maybe in the last chapter it will all come together but I feel there is no point in wasting more time trying to find out


    Did All Over Creation inspire you to do anything?
