Résumé de l'éditeur

Nitta Sayuri tells us in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate of her life as a geisha. Her story 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 we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's 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.

bien mais trop court!

cette version est selon moi meilleure que la seconde sur audiobook: je préfère la lectrice. l'histoire est très intéressante, surtout si l'on est déjà allé au Japon. J'ai cependant trouvé l'audiobook un peu court pour le prix
