Novelist, filmmaker and Zen Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki, best known for "My Year of Meats" and the Booker short-listed "A Tale for the Time Being", beams in from Connecticut to talk about her latest novel, "The Book of Form and Emptiness", with Liz Grant. Touching on the importance of reading, the strangeness of consumer culture, and resilience and grief, it was described by David Mitchell as a 'compassionate novel of life, love and loss [which] glows in the dark. Its strange, beautiful pages turn themselves'.
