Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Memoirs of a Geisha:

The path a Geisha walked through Imperial Japan, WWII, and the aftermath of the bomb.

My favorite Arthur Golden quote from the book:

"We can never flee the misery that is within us."


Questions to ponder while reading Memoirs of a Geisha:

What things have decided your destiny?

How have you chosen your path?

My review of the book:

A compelling story.

Well-researched historical fiction.

Just barely scratches the complexity of Imperial Japan.
