This is the famous best seller written by Arthur Golden. The novel is about Sayuri, a beautiful and successful geisha. Now she is retired and lives in New York.
The events of Memoirs of a Geisha occur during a time in Japan when geisha played an integral part in social life. Though a geisha might flirt with the men she entertains, the clients must satisfy themselves with the illusion of sex rather than the act itself. After all, if a man simply wanted sex, then he could visit one of the many legal brothels in the city.
