The Clout of Gen by Ahmad Ardalan

John Teddy, a newspaper reporter feels his life has no more meaning, but whilst contemplating ending things by jumping off a cliff, he spots a box, the contents of which will change his life forever.

It's hard to class this book as, even though the centre of it has a time traveller, it is about Teddy's new found life and his search for the figure on the video in the box and the consequences of it.

I found this story to be enthralling and I was quite moved at times.  The descriptions of the settings in Kyoto made me think I might like to visit it.  This is one of those gems I've discovered and feel glad that I have.
