'Come and be my geisha'. Responding to her solider husband's invitation, an American woman arrives in 1950's Japan and encounters something very different to the world of Madame Butterfly and Lafcadio Hearn she is expecting. Entertaining and insightful, this memoir captures the challenge and mutual incomprehension she experiences as she strives to learn about another culture and people, while they struggle to understand her. Written with tremendous zest and good humour, American Geisha is a timeless example of how to live abroad successfully in an increasingly global world, as well as a fascinating account of everyday life in Japan in the immediate post-war years.
