Sold into geisha training in 1929 when she's only 9 years old, Nitta Sayuri transforms herself over the next decade from a poor fisherman's daughter to a coveted geisha. Elaina Erika Davis does an exquisite job bringing Sayuri's mythic adventure to life. She's just as convincing portraying the child at the mercy of the elder geisha who desperately wants to see Sayuri fail as she is bringing to life the adult Sayuri's passionate yearning for the man she loves. Davis's talent, combined with Arthur Golden's painstaking detail of life in Japan in the early twentieth century, makes Memoirs of a Geisha both fascinating and educational.
