Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden( Book )

Overview: A literary sensation and runaway bestseller, this brilliant debut novel tells with seamless authenticity and exquisite lyricism the true confessions of one of Japan's most celebrated geisha. Speaking to us with the wisdom of age and in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri tells the story of her life as a geisha. It 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 she learns the rigorous arts of the geisha: dance and music; wearing kimono, elaborate makeup, and hair; pouring sake to reveal just a touch of inner wrist; competing with a jealous rival for men's solicitude and the money that goes with it. 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 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

Memorias de una geisha by Arthur Golden( )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in Spanish and English and held by 32 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

À 9 ans, dans le Japon d'avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Sayuri est vendue par son père, un modeste pêcheur, à une maison de plaisir de Kyoto. Dotée d'extraordinaires yeux bleus, la petite fille comprend vite qu'il faut mettre à profit la chance qui est la sienne. Elle se plie avec docilité à l'initiation difficile qui en fera une vraie geisha. Art de la toilette et de la coiffure, rituel du thé, science du chant, de la danse et de l'amour : Sayuri va peu à peu se hisser au rang des geishas les plus convoitées de la ville. Les riches, les puissants se disputeront ses faveurs. Elle triomphera des pièges que lui tend la haine d'une rivale. Elle rencontrera finalement l'amour... 1999, c1997
