Geisha

Autobiography Of A Geisha (Vintage Original)
Autobiography Of A Geisha (Vintage Original)
"Far from a boring autobiography, this book will bring you to tears. A real-life story that is so shocking, it could be mistaken for fiction. This book will touch your soul. Highly recommended."
Becoming Madame Mao
Becoming Madame Mao
"A fictional biography. I especially love this book, not only because of its original writing-style, but primarily because it gives us a glimpse of China through the eyes of a villain."
Falling Leaves Return to Their Roots: The True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter
Falling Leaves Return to Their Roots: The True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter
"Unlike other autobiographies from the Orient, this story is neither terribly poetic, nor romantic. It's simply REAL. A book I couldnt put down."
The Tales of the Otori Trilogy
The Tales of the Otori Trilogy
"Fiction at its finest. A new, imaginery world in ancient Japan, with all its beautiful customs. Love, lust, princesses, warriors, super-human powers. A great adventure!"
The Secrets of Jin-Shei
The Secrets of Jin-Shei
"An interesting story and characters, but I wasnt too happy with the way its written. In my opinion its not as good as the other books but still worth a read, especially if you like adventure-stories."
South Of The Border, West Of The Sun
South Of The Border, West Of The Sun
"Just finished this book and I can still feel it in my heart. This isnt a fairytale; this is the beauty and sadness of real life. A tale of childhood sweethearts and a lot of mysteries. It's brilliant!"
