I lenti accordi ritmici simulano i battiti del cuore, mentre il luccichio purpureo della bocca rimbalza d...a una nota all'altra e l'eco di ognuno di quei rimbalzi ti si ripercuote nel petto. I testi dei misteriosi ed antichi kouta raccontano le storie d'amore e di morte, le piccole invidie e gelosie, i drammi profondi, le rivalita artistiche e le amicizie, insomma la vita quotidiana di queste spirituali Sacerdotesse dell'Arte, si, ma sempre con un prezioso cuore di donna avvolto dalla seta del kimono. Liza Dalby, la prima occidentale che abbia mai avuto il privilegio di vivere nei quartieri delle geisha, ci prende per mano e ci conduce fin dentro il karyukai: dritti nel cuore delle geisha di Kyoto. Il libro e corredato da 35 fotografie, contiene i testi di 25 kouta in italiano, inglese e giapponese nonche 2 spartiti musicali.
