  • L'auteur

A tale that tells the story of a geisha girl, uncovering a hidden world of eroticism and enchantment, exploitation and degradation. From a small fishing village in 1929, the tale moves to the heart of Kyoto in the 1930s, where a peasant girl is sold as servant and apprentice to a geisha house. She tells her story many years later from New York.
