Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden (Paperback, 1998) This story is a rare and utterly engaging experience It tells the extraordinary story of a geisha -summoning up a quarter century from 1929 to the post-war years of Japan's dramatic history and opening a window into a half-hidden world of eroticism and enchantment exploitation and degradation 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 Her memoirs conjure 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 land's most powerful men
