It begins in a poor fishing village in 1929, when, as a nine-year-old girl with unusual blue-gray eyes, she is taken from her home and sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. We witness her transformation as she learns the rigorous ans of the geisha: dance and music, wearing kimono, elaborate makeup, and hair- pouring sake to reveal just a touch of inner wrist- competing with a jealous rival for mens solicitude and the money that goes with it.In Memoirs of a Geisha, we enter a world where appearances are paramount- where a girls virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder- where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men- and where love is scorned as illusion.

It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction -- at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful -- and completely unforgettable.
