Esta sensación literaria y bestseller internacional presenta con perfecta autenticidad y exquisito lirismo las confesiones de una geisha famosa de Japón. En esta novela entramos a un mundo donde las apariencias son de suma importancia; donde la virginidad de una niña es subastada al mejor postor; donde las mujeres son entrenadas para seducir a los hombres más poderosos; y donde el amor es desdeñado como una mera ilusión. Es una obra de ficción al mismo tiempo romántica, erótica y de suspenso.--Desde la descripción de la editorial

"I wasn't born and raised to be a Kyoto geisha ... I'm a fisherman's daughter from a little town called Yoroido on the Sea of Japan." How nine-year-old Chiyo, sold with her sister into slavery by their father after their mother's death, becomes Sayuri, the beautiful geisha accomplished in the art of entertaining men, is the focus of this fascinating first novel. Narrating her life story from her elegant suite in the Waldorf Astoria, Sayuri tells of her traumatic arrival at the Nitta okiya (a geisha house), where she endures harsh treatment from Granny and Mother, the greedy owners, and from Hatsumomo, the sadistically cruel head geisha. But Sayuri's chance meeting with the Chairman, who shows her kindness, makes her determined to become a geisha. Under the tutelage of the renowned Mameha, she becomes a leading geisha of the 1930s and 1940s. After the book's compelling first half, the second half is a bit flat and overlong. Still, Golden, with degrees in Japanese art and history, has brilliantly revealed the culture and traditions of an exotic world, closed to most Westerners
