    A Geisha for the American Consul (a short story) eBook: Downer, Lesley: : Kindle Store.   Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Speaking to us with the wisdom of age and in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri tells the story of her life as a :

While miscegenation might seem an unlikely theme for Hollywood, Marchetti shows how fantasy-dramas of interracial rape, lynching, tragic love, and model marriage are powerfully evident in American author begins with a discussion of D. W. Griffith's Broken Blossoms, then. As per Said, Akita finds the "Orient" a Western construction and the popularity of the book and the movie illustrate an appetite for "postmodern American Orientalism." Chillingly, Akita asserts that the "Memoirs of a Geisha" book "has been adopted for use in literature and other humanities classes at some U.S. colleges and universities.".

"Floating World" refers to Japan's traditional Geisha pleasure districts, but also to the artistic and literary worlds associated with them.
