Und die deutschen Leser schlossen sich an: Wochenlang auf der "Spiegel"-Bestsellerliste, über 100.000 verkaufte Exemplare im Hardcover. Jetzt endlich kommt die Geschichte des Fischermädchens Chiyo als eBook. Nach dem Tod ihrer Mutter wird Chiyo in ein Geisha-Haus nach Kyoto verkauft. Nach leidvollen Lehrjahren wird sie in die hermetische Gesellschaft der Geisha aufgenommen und ist bald die begehrteste und mächtigste von allen. Doch ihr Traum vom privaten Glück erfüllt sich erst nach jahrelangen Wirren und dem Untergang der alten Geisha-Kultur gegen Ende des verlorenen Zweiten Weltkrieges. Arthur Golden öffnet die Tür zu einer geheimnisvollen Welt und lässt den Fremden etwas spüren von jenen gefährlich-schönen und machtvoll stilisierten gleichwohl versklavten Frauen, wie es sie in dieser Art und Weise nur in Japan gab

His main character, Joshua, is a Montreal Jew who is opinionated, cynical and comes from a seedy background: and yet, is able to survive, become successful and marries into a well-off family that have their own set of closet skeletons. The story has many interesting twists and emotions vary from the serious, sad or sometimes, to the very funny. Like many of Richler's characters, there is a gutsy determination, a sense of purposeful indignation about Joshua that you can admire and identify with. --R. Nicholson at Amazon.com
