The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters is a historical fiction novel with intrigue and passion. Set in 1920s London, the story follows a widow and her "spinster daughter" as they take in a young couple as tenants.

It is and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned; the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa — a large, silent house now bereft of brothers, husband, and even servants.

One of Japan's most celebrated geisha. Nitta Sayuri tells the story of her life as a geisha. It begins in a poor fishing village in 1929, she is taken from her home and sold to a renowned geisha house. We witness her transformation as she learns the rigorous arts of the geisha competing with a jealous rival. In Memoirs of a Geisha, we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion.
