Australia.: Text Publishing Co.. 2013.. 422 pages, paperback. Nao lives in Tokyo. She is sixteen, and has decided to write a diary before she kills herself. She has plenty of material - school bullies, depressed parents - but she particularly wants to chronicle the life of her great-grandmother, Jiko, a Buddhist nun. And eventually, Nao thinks, her diary will find its reader. Ruth lives with her husband on the Pacific coast of Canada. A few months after the 2010 tsunami she finds a Hello Kitty lunchbox washed up on the shore. It contains a diary...'This is the simple story of a girl, her great-grandmother and the novelist who becomes enthralled with their tale. But this simple story draws from the deep currents of our times, from quantum physics, Japanese ghost tales, suicide trends, first-person accounts of kamikaze fighters during World War II, thirteenth-century Buddhist texts and recent pop culture. It is a meditation on impermanence, and the intimate relationship between past and present, fact and fiction, and time and text.' - Ruth Ozeki ., Text Publishing Co., 2013., New York: Dover Publications, Inc., 2000. ISBN: 0-486-41133-8, Minor peeling of the rear cover bottom edge, light shelf rubbing, very little wear overall. Text is clean. 'Naval officer Matthew Perry set sail for Japan in 1852 with a small escort of ships and a huge commission - persuading the Japanese government to emerge from isolation and enter economic and diplomatic relations with the United States. . . Based on Perry's journal, this gripping narrative features supplements from the diaries of other officers as well as from official correspondence and reports. Exciting highlights include Perry's flagship dropping anchor in Tokyo Bay to a markedly chilly reception, tense diplomatic standoffs, and sumptuous parties hosted by representatives of both governments. . . Enhanced with over 200 rare illustrations, this remarkable historical document also offers a magnificent travelogue, brimming with revealing anecdotes and picturesque details about Singapore, Mauritius, Macao, the Bonin Islands, and other exotic locales.' 537 pages. 8 x 11 inches..
