Geisha, Paperback

Geisha Paperback



Liza Dalby, author of The Tale of Murasaki, is the only non-Japanese woman ever to have become a geisha.

This is her unique insight into the extraordinary, closed world of the geisha, a world of grace, beauty and tradition that has long fascinated and enthralled the West.

Taking us to the heart of a way of life normally hidden from the public gaze, Liza Dalby shows us the detailed reality that lies behind the bestselling Memoirs of a Geisha and opens our eyes to an ancient profession that continues to survive in today's modern Japan.
