Phyllis Birnbaum (au). The stunning biographical portraits in this volume, some adapted from essays that first appeared in “The New Yorker,” explore the lives of 5 women who did their best to stand up & cause more trouble than was considered proper in Japanese society. Their lives stretch across more than a century of explosive cultural & political transformation in Japan. These five artists -- actress Matsui Sumako, film star Takamine Hideko, poet Yanagiwara Byakuren, novelist Uno Chiyo, & painter Takamura Chieko -- were noted for their talents, their beauty, & their love affairs rather than for any association with politics. But through the fearlessness of their art & their private lives, they influenced the attitudes of their times & challenged the status quo. Photos.
