This book tells a totally different side of the geisha. It was written in 1918 and the author actually lived in a geisha house. It puts a more of what Westerns believe as geishas being paid entertainment in a bad way. It takes the "quiet, good natured, entertainer" to a woman who is bouncing between 3 different men in a love triangle (to put it nicely) and how she copes when things go from being happy to having everything go bad to her. The novel is an easy read and there is not much explained as far as giving you a visual of what is going on...but the novel is not bad.
