Rebecca | 25 comments Oh, I need to go back and read all the Dahl books. So great.

Did you love Geisha?

message 4: by Sadaf (new)

Sadaf (saddaf) Oh Yes, I really liked it a lot. In Urdu Literature, we have a similar novel, which you can term a classic, called "Umrao Jaan Ada". Memoirs of a Geisha seemed like Umrao Jaan Ada set in Japan rather than in Mughal India :) I loved it though.
