'An epic tale and a brutal evocation of a disappearing world' The Times

A young peasant girl is sold as servant and apprentice to a renowned geisha house. Many years later she tells her story from a hotel in New York, opening a window into an extraordinary half-hidden world of eroticism and enchantment, exploitation and degradation and summoning up a quarter of a century of Japan's dramatic history.

'Intimate and brutal, written in cool, lucid prose it is a novel whose psychological empathy and historical truths are outstanding' Mail on Sunday

MEDIA REVIEWS

An epic tale and a beautiful evocation of a rapidly vanishing world - The Times

The sort of novel that novel-lovers yearn for, which is to say, so convincing that while reading it you become transported to another time, another place, and feel you are listening and seeing with someone else's ears and eyes - Margaret Forster

Endlessly fascinating...a narrative that is both gripping and beautifully paced...a wonderful read - Observer

Sayuri's memoirs reveal Golden to have great gifts of imaginative empathy...fascinating - Independent

This is one of those rare novels that evokes a vanished world with absolute conviction and in every detail... This book is exceptional - Daily Mail
