1 Golden, Arthur Memoirs of a Geisha
New York Knopf 1997 0375400117 / 9780375400117 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Patterned ivory boards with a gilt-stamped burgundy backstrip. Quarto. 434pps. Stated First Edition. The spine-ends are mildly bumped and a previous owner's bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a small crease in a corner of the rear flap; the original price is intact. A very nice copy of the author's first novel. ".An alluring tour de force: a brilliant debut novel told with seamless authenticity and exquisite lyricism as the true confessions of one of Japan's most celebrated geisha. Speaking to us with the wisdom of age and in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri tells the story of her life as a geisha. In 'Memoirs of A Geisha,' we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. This is a book of nuance and vivid metaphor, of memorable characters rendered with humor and pathos. And though the story is rich with detail and a vast knowledge of history, it is the transparent, seductive voice of Sayuri that the reader remembers."
