At the sexually promiscuous court of Kyoto in early 11th century Japan, the poet Onogoro has an embarrassing problem with her love life. Oyu, the blind storyteller, holds the key to solving it. Hiding behind a screen in Onogoro's bedroom, Oyu is a potent but invisible guest at the feast of lovemaking. Only Oyu's cruel and sensual tales can unlock the secrets to Onogoro's orgasm. Writing in an era of astrologers and Tiger-gods, the unknown narrator sounds a startlingly modern note, as she seeks to escape a world of concubinage and female suppression.


Good plus condition, with a little light wear to the covers and slight tanning to the margins.
