In a wonderful world shaped by beauty and poetry, ancient traditions and popular intrigue, a young woman at the centre of the eleventh-century Japanese imperial court observes the exotic world around her. Murasaki sees everything, the Emperor and Empress, aristocrats and concubines, warriors and servants, her own family. She records a remarkable place of political and sexual plotting, male power and female manipulation, as she writes the Tale of Genji, the masterpiece of Japanese literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Tale of Murasaki brings vividly to life the fascinating eleventh-century world of the creator of Japan's enduring masterpiece, Tale of Genji" -- Arthur Golden, author of 'Memoirs of a Geisha'
"Enter the exotic, entrancing world of the Japanese Imperial court...for a gentle immersion in a world of long ago and far away, The Tale of Murasaki is just the ticket...hypnotic" * The Times *
"Luscious, lush and languorously elegant... You feel you are breathing the air of 11th-century Japan" * USA Today *
"Captivating... The Tale of Murasaki gets the big things right, including, indispensably, the dark undercurrent of sadness running below the bright, embroidered surface... All this, and much more, rings so true to the created milieu of Genji that one is inclined to indulge Dalby in all she has dreamed or imagined" * Washington Post Book World *
"An amazing feat... Anyone already an enthusiast either of Tale of Genji or of Arthur Golden's wonderful Memoirs of a Geisha will already be running to the bookstore for this book... A wonderful accomplishment" * Newsday *
