All Over Creation book. All Over Creation is probably Ruth Ozeki's weakest book to date, and yet, I devoured it in just one hung-over weekend. I'm not going to say much about the plot other than that it is the story of a family who split apart over a matter of principle and who are slowly Lloyd’s home, Mom. I fingered the straggling ends of my mother’s hair.
Praise for Ruth Ozeki and All Over Creation. bewitching, intelligent, hilarious, and heartbreaking, often on the same page. If I tell you that it is a book about seeds that won't convey the whole of it but it would be entirely accurate. Not only does the plot revolve around the idea of genetically engineered seeds and their ruinous effect on the planet's diversity but the book also rather deftly ties in philosophies of generation, birth and death and renewal.
All Over Creation is a novel by Ruth Ozeki about Yumi Fuller, the Japanese-American daughter of a potato farmer in Idaho who returns home as an adult to care for her parents, Lloyd and Momoko.

Critical Acclaim for Ruth Ozeki and All Over Creation. is a gifted storyteller. Ruth Ozeki is bent on taking the novel into corners of American culture no one else has thought to look-but where she finds us in all our trans-cultural and technological weirdness. With a combination of humor and pathos that is all her own, All Over Creation brings the American pastoral forward into the age of agribusiness and genetic engineering

How can it not? Imagine the planet like a split peach, whose pit forms the core, whose flesh its mantle, and whose fuzzy skin its crust-no, that doesn’t do justice to the crust, which is, after all,. where all of life takes place. The earth’s crust must be more like the rind of the orange, thicker and more durable, quite unlike the thin skin of a bruisable peach. Or is it? Funny, how you never think to wonder.

Within the pages of this book lies the diary of a girl called Nao. Riding the waves of a tsunami, it is making its way across the ocean. From the author of My Year of Meats-a dramatic story of a prodigal daughter's homecoming to a heartland of genetically modified crops. My Year of Meats, Ruth Ozeki's delicious debut novel, won a devoted following and was hailed by critics as inventing a new genre: the "eco-saga. Now, Ozeki takes us to the heart of the potato farming industry. a nice blend of humor and strangely affecting optimism. Ozeki has written a book where dread and hope coexist. Neither is given short shrift or magicked away.
