Harcourt 1996 0151001863 / 9780151001866 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A highly collectible first edition/printing, a tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions or markings, not price clipped an ex-library or a book of the month club edition. In this novel, apparently based on the classic Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon, and edited by a Scottish poet and novelist. Lady Onogoro is a poet and mistress of an imaginary general Motosuke in 11th-century Japan. To assist her performance in bed, Lady Onogoro, who has been having trouble achieving orgasm, hides the blind stable boy, Oyu, behind a screen at the head of her bed. He arouses her by whispering erotic stories in her ear while the general has sex with her. Complications arise and Lady Onogoro gains some insight on her own situation. Cleverly and humorously written, this novel portrays court life in Kyoto from a woman's point of view. The erotic stories are fanciful and entertaining.
