90-Day Geisha

ebook

This is the true story of one girl's immersion in the world of hostessing, a late-night entertainment for wealthy Japanese men drawn from the traditional institution of the geisha 'Millionaires, surgeons, serial killers, CEOs: I light their cigarettes, mix their drinks. We engage in conversation. I am the facilitator of good times. I am a hostess.' Step into the surreal world of a Tokyo hostess club and gain an exclusive underground pass through the eyes of author Chelsea Haywood as she explores a way of life unique to the Japanese, experiencing $600 dinners, kabuki theatre, Harajuku shopping sprees and first-class trips to 'anywhere you want to go'. This is the true story of one girl's immersion in the world of hostessing, a late-night entertainment for wealthy Japanese men drawn from the traditional institution of the geisha. While the foreign slowly becomes familiar, Chelsea's initial enthusiasm turns into turmoil as she struggles to maintain both her sanity and her marriage in the face of material excess and relentless temptation.
