Geisha, A Life

by Mineko Iwasaki with Rande Brown

From the cover, “No woman in the three-hundred-year history of the karyukai has ever come forward in public to tell her story – until now.”

No flags, but it’s an interesting real-life account of the world of geisha. If you’ve read Memoirs of a Geisha, you’ll find some discrepancies (i.e. around the meaning of the mizuage ceremony) – very interesting!
