Sayuri tells the story of her extraordinary life as a geisha. She elegantly presents a unique picture of a hidden and changing way of life. Arthur Golden is a contemporary American writer who has spent much time living and working in Japan and has a remarkable insight into its culture. Suitable for older learners.
'I absolutely love Memoirs of a Geisha - it takes you on such a rollercoaster ride! You really feel for the main character, Sayuri, who is taken from her poor Japanese background, sold into slavery and then groomed to be a geisha. I so badly wanted to help her have a better life. The book will take you through every emotion. Well worth the read!' New Woman, May 2005
