Memorias de una geisha by Arthur Golden( )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apasionante y sorprendente, Memorias de una geisha ha batido récords de permanencia en las listas de best sellers de todo el mundo y conquistado a lectores de más de 26 idiomas. Poco antes de su muerte, Sayuri, una anciana japonesa afincada en Nueva York, cuenta su vida a un joven amigo americano. La suya es la historia de cómo, desde una mísera infancia, llegó a convertirse en una de las geishas más famosas del Japón de entreguerras, un país donde aún resonaban los ecos feudales y donde las tradiciones ancestrales empezaban a convivir con los modos del mundo moderno. De la mano de Sayuri entraremos en un mundo secreto dominado por las pasiones y sostenido por las apariencias, en el que la sensualidad y la belleza no pueden separarse del sometimiento: un mundo en el que las jóvenes aspirantes a geishas son duramente adiestradas en el arte de la seducción, y donde tienen que convencerse de que, para ellas, el amor no es más que un espejismo. La crítica ha dicho: Memorias de una geisha sumerge al lector en un mundo exótico The New York Times Asombrosa, impresionante... Absolutamente seductora. The Washigton Post Book World

Handlingen i denne dramatiske romanen i Japan i 1929. Da blir ni år gamle Sayuri solgt til et geishahus i storbyen Kyoto. Sayuri kommer fra en fattig fiskerlandsby og hun kan bare vagt ane hva som venter henne når hun får det første brutale møte med geishaen Hatsumomo. Hun er like overjordisk vakker som hun er ubeskrivelig ond - og hun er kvinne som i mange år skal komme til å formørke Sayuris liv. For Sayuri blir veien til tronen som en av Japans mest berømte og feirede geishaer mer enn tornefull; den er en kamp på liv og død. Boken er under filmatisering med Steve Spielberg som regissør. Boken ble utgitt første gang på norsk i 2000
