A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki


Recommended by Daniel K:

This novel is one ambitious metanarrative. It’s harsh and gritty at times, surreal and joyous at others, full of rich characters and existential dilemmas. Novelist Ruth finds a lunchbox washed up on the beach. In it is the diary of Nao, an American-born Japanese girl on the verge of suicide. From this moment on, their lives are forever linked, as Ruth tries to reach out to Nao across the Pacific ocean.
