Liza Dalby is the only representative of the West world ever HAS Become an acting geisha. She is an anthropologist and a specialist in Japanese culture. She is the author of nonfiction books "Geisha" and "Kimono" and consultant of Steven Spielberg For His movie adaptation of the novel "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden.

Mixing facts of the Lady Muraski's life and her own imagination, Dalby Describes the life in the imperial palace of Japan During the Heian period with all the ceremonial showiness and palace intrigues.
The narrative is filled up with magnificent descriptions of customs, rituals and nature, which re-creates a vanished world, a Scheherazade from the XI century ...
The tales of Murasaki sounds so authentically compared to the "Tale of Genji" that the reader is inclined to show mercy to all the fantasies and Assumptions of Liza Dalby. This lavish, exquisite and at times elegiac novel is worth reading Because of the amazing story line, and Because of the beautiful and elegant language. And Murasaki, though Belonging to a distant era, is no different from today's feminist heroines.
