Book recommendations!
« on: September 21, 2017, 09:46:29 AM »
Looking for books is harder these days for me  :cry: I'm looking for really specific types of books, could the forum help?

I'm looking for GEISHA-themed books, both fiction and non-fiction. I've read Geisha of Gion, Autobiography of a Geisha, and Memoirs of a Geisha. Looking for more, and not willing to take the risk on Amazon books that may or not be of sufficiant quality.

Recommend away!

Dang, the one subject I have an interest in and I can't find half my books about it :( Then again most of them you've already read.

Have you read Liza Dalby's book, Geisha?

Also I follow a woman who is extremely knowledgeable about geisha who does book reviews; She's legitimate too.

Have you read "Teahouse of the August Moon" ?   It's an old one but has a kind of gentle humor that makes it rather charming.

I haven't! I should, it's one of the 'biggies' that I still haven't read XD And with that link, the first one looks really interesting, I'll have to see if I can get a copy

No, is it this one?

This book has grabbed my attention, I might grab it next time I place an order

Try googling books that are like and put in the name geisha, and also under specific author names. That helps me and then I do online searches for reviews to see what seems good

Amy Tan writes good books not specific geisha but still I really enjoy her books they are very I interesting and have engaging characters
