A geisha describes her sale to a geisha house at the age of six, her traditional training, her debut in 1940 at the age of sixteen, and her work at a hot-springs resort, where the realities of everyday life were far removed from the more recognized glamorous geisha quarter of Japan.Remarkable for its wit and frankness, the book is a moving record of a womana#39;s survival on the margins of Japanese society -- in the words of the translator, aquot;the superbly told tale of a woman whom fortune never favored yet never defeated.aquot;
