Sinopsis:

Sharply evocative, atmospheric, and suspenseful, My Name Is Sei Shonagon―with rights sold in eight countries before publication―adds an exciting new dimension to literature about Japan in the way that Memoirs of a Geisha has done, and introduces a fantast

In a small incense shop in modern Tokyo, amid the manic consumerism of cartoon-colored Shibuya youth culture, incense is still made in the ancient way―slowly ground by hand and matured over time. Above the shop, a young woman sits behind a painted screen, listening to men unburden themselves about their work-dominated lives. She calls herself “Sei Shonagon,” after the eleventh-century woman who wrote The Pillow Book. This exquisite first novel is a Pillow Book for the twenty-first century; its “Sei” is a young woman who, as a child, moved to Japan from America to live with her strict, tradition-obsessed uncle after the death of her parents, an American academic and a Japanese student. As the novel opens, “Sei,” now a young woman, lies in a hospital bed, hearing sounds around her, unable to speak except silently to herself-"I don't even know if you are still alive...I’m going to talk to you anyway, tell you everything I remember.” Thus her story unfolds, back to a dark past and toward an unimaginable fate.

From the Inside Flap:

This exquisite first novel tells the story of a woman?s rebellion against the constraints of Japanese society, where the collision of twenty-first century Capitalism and a deeply traditional sexual morality conspire to keep men and women in subservience.
