A very interesting story about a Japenese-American woman who is comparing herself and her sexual and romantic experiences with those of her grandmother who was a sold by her father into the profession of geisha. Very thought provoking. Here is one woman forced to do the things that another woman only 2 generations away freely chooses to do and yet could she have led the more satisfied life?
A thoroughly Americanized 2nd generation Japanese woman discovers incredible secrets when the grandmother she had never met comes to visit. This book has been described as a cross between Memoirs of a Geisha and the movie "Ghost". Fascinating story!
I had a difficult time really getting into the story. The main characters decreased boyfriend, Phillip is in the story appearing as a "ghost" it took me awhile to figure this out. It seems that she is having doubts about marrying her new boyfriend named Eric and she does describe in detail her sexual encounters. Not my kind of story but someone else may like it.
