KIRKUS REVIEW

When novelist-san Michael Cameron goes to Japan to write a novel about the geisha, he leaves behind a confused, messy situation with his wife and a short period of mental illness. In Kyoto he's lent an old teahouse by his old friend and Sensei, Ando, plus a diary of a geisha who lived 100 years ago which will be the basis for his novel--along with various apparitions who weave in and out of the house and the book and provide a little erotic stimulus. Even ""Krafft and Ebing"" become divided personalities before the equally inconclusive finale. If Kenny-san wrote a little better, you might look almost alive.
