Memoirs of a geisha

Available in :
Memoirs of a geisha_ a novel - Arthur Golden
The novel is narrated from the point of view of Nitta Sayuri, a retired geisha in her seventies living in the Waldorf Towers in New York City. She is interviewed by Jakob Haarhuis, a professor at New York University. Professor Haarhuis is credited as the story's translator, although he is a fictional character himself. (This is apparently a reference to the fact that Golden interviewed a retired geisha as part of his research for the novel.) The story is told in flashback format with continuous references to the time between Sayuri's career and the time she is being interviewed. She also periodically explains different aspects of geisha life.

Sayuri recalls her early childhood as Sakamoto Chiyo, a young girl growing up in the poor fishing village of Yoroido. Along with her older sister Satsu, she is sold to be sent to an okiya in Kyoto's hanamachi by her elderly father and dying mother when she is just nine years old. Chiyo is taken in by the okiya to train to become a geisha, but Satsu is rejected. She finds much later that her sister has not been so fortunate and now works in the pleasure district of the hanamachi as a prostitute. Chiyo begins her life in the okiya as a maid working under Mother and Auntie, two older women who run the okiya. She becomes friends with the other young girl there, who she calls Pumpkin due to her round face.

Chiyo soon meets the only geisha in her okiya, the malicious Hatsumomo. Despite her cruelty, she is a successful earner and her behavior is ignored. In an effort to use Chiyo as her personal slave, Hatsumomo forces Chiyo to 'swear herself to her' in exchange for the location of her sister, blaming her for a ruined kimono and adding to Chiyo's debts considerably. Chiyo eventually finds Satsu and the two work out a plan to run away together. Days before the planned escape however, Chiyo finds Hatsumomo with a man, something that is strictly forbidden as geisha cannot have boyfriends. The doors are locked and nobody is allowed out as punishment for tolerating the late night visits. Chiyo attempts to escape over the rooftops, but slips and is injured. As she has dishonored the okiya she is henceforth destined for a life of servitude as a maid, paying back her debts with her life earnings. One day soon afterward, Chairman Iwamura Ken notices the young Chiyo crying in the street, and gives her his handkerchief and some money to buy an iced snow-cone to cheer her up. The Chairman's kindness inspires Chiyo to one day become a geisha in order to gain his attention again.

Life passes on this way for some time, and Pumpkin has graduated to become an apprentice geisha under Hatsumomo while Chiyo remains a maid. Unexpectedly one of the most popular geisha, Mameha (whose kimono Chiyo was forced to ruin by Hatsumomo's hand), shows interest in Chiyo, and arguing that it would be a waste of talent to keep her as a maid convinces Mother to continue Chiyo's training as a geisha under her. Chiyo becomes the "little sister" of Mameha. This outrages Hatsumomo as she considers Mameha her rival, and bans Pumpkin and Chiyo from speaking with each other again. Mameha trains her, and Chiyo has her name changed to 'Sayuri' and due to her wit and beauty soon becomes one of the most prominent maiko in the hanamachi. Jealous and enraged, Hatsumomo uses her considerable influence to attempt to sabotage Sayuri's career by spreading rumours and dogging them from party to party. At first, it appears as though she will be successful.

In order to save Sayuri's reputation, Mameha creates a plan to create a bidding war between two men who dislike each other. Nobu Toshikazu, who happens to be close friends and business partners with the object of Sayuri's affection, the Chairman, and a doctor dubbed 'Dr.Crab'. Nobu is a war hero and has extensive scarring and a missing arm, by feigning affection for Nobu it is ensured that Hatsumomo will not steal him away as she finds h
