In Memoirs of a Geisha 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 powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. Nitta Sayuri's transformation began at the tender age of nine when she was sold into slavery at a renowned geisha house and ended with the closure of the houses following the eruption of World War II. This is her story told in rich detail and in a haunting, lyrical voice.
