Mineko Iwasaki (au); Rande Brown (au). Mineko Iwasaki is the first Japanese geisha to shed light on the fascinating & arcane geisha tradition. Captivating & poignant, her book captures her earliest memoires, beginning with her move to the geisha house at the tender age of four & her initiation into the profession that she would perfect. As we follow Mineko’s gradual blossoming over the years, we learn all about the intricate training & rigid education system by which girls become geishas, the specific duties & performances required of the women, & the extraordinarily vast foundation of wealth upon which geisha culture rests. Filled with moments of great strength & delicate beauty, this is a brave & luminous revelation. “Honest & authentic & entirely believable.” Color & black & white photos.
