A tale for the time being by Ruth L Ozeki( Book )

65 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A time being is someone who lives in time, and that means you, and me, and every one of us who is, or was, or ever will be." In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao Yasutani, a Japanese schoolgirl has decided there is only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates' bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, Jiko, a Buddhist nun who's lived more than a century. But Nao actually ends up writing her own life story; the diary is her only solace, and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine. Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on the shore of Canada's Vancouver Island, where she discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox, possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. The diary is in a freezer bag with some old letters in French and a vintage watch and Ruth begins to investigate how the bag traveled from Japan to her island, and why it contains what it does. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao's drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future. Full of the author's signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, this is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home. -- Provided by publisher

61 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 12 languages and held by 1,618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruth L. Ozeki's novel opens with two women on opposite sides of the globe, whose lives cannot be further apart. But when Jane gets a job, coordinating a television series whose mission is to bring the American heartland, and American meat, into the homes of Japan, she makes some wrenching discoveries - about love, meat, honor, and a hormone called DES. When Jane and Akiko's lives converge, what is revealed taps the deepest concerns of our time - how the past informs the present and how we live and love in this "blessed, ever-shrinking world."
