This is one of my all time favorite books. The first novel ever written was penned by a Japanese woman - Lady Murasaki who wrote The Tale of Genji. The Tales were a collection of steamy, erotic tales was not only a first in literary terms, but in sexual expression as well.
This fictional biography of the woman who wrote these tales is a fantastic journey into ancient Japan, complete with graphic details of housing, dress, and cultural norms. The book is both physically gorgeous, and a fast paced read.
