Synopsis

Synopsis

Una sensación literaria y bestseller internacional presenta con perfecta autenticidad y exquisito lirismo las fieles confesiones de una de las geishas m‡s famosas de Japón.
 
En Memorias de una geisha entramos a un mundo donde las apariencias son de suma importancia; donde la virginidad de una niña es subastada al mejor postor; donde las mujeres son entrenadas para seducir a los hombres más poderosos; y donde el amor es desde–ado como una mera ilusión. Es una obra de ficción única y triunfal– al mismo tiempo romántica, erótica y de suspenso –absolutamente inolvidable.
