About this product

Product Information

Seductive, evocative, exquisite - intimate memoirs spanning half a century of Japanese history, revealing a closed world. A seductive and evocative epic on an intimate scale, that tells the extraordinary story of a geisha girl. Summoning up more than twenty years of Japan's most dramatic history, it uncovers a hidden world of eroticism and enchantment, exploitation and degradation. From a small fishing village in 1929, the tale moves to the glamorous and decadent heart of Kyoto in the 1930s, where a young peasant girl is sold as servant and apprentice to a renowned geisha house. She tells her story many years later from the Waldorf Astoria in New York; it exquisitely evokes another culture, a different time and the details of an extraordinary way of life. It conjures up the perfection and the ugliness of life behind rice-paper screens, where young girls learn the arts of geisha - dancing and singing, how to wind the kimono, how to walk and pour tea, and how to beguile the most powerful men.

  • Recommended for Asian culture loving people

    This novel is one of the best in its genre, however I´ve read better ones as well... I have seen the movie based on this very book and have to say the book is light-years ahead of the movie in quality. I love how the author explains every Japanese expression used during the creation of the book so this way the reader can understand Japanese culture and habits more easily. The novel itself is rather dynamic but after the heroine´s triumph the novel slowly begins to suffer. I won´t write spoilers so if you want to find out what am I talking about buy the book and read it. This edition is a paperback one, which is very good, but one shall take care not to bend vertically the spine of the book.
