The Pillow Book of Lady Kasa

A grand tenth century love affair told by a beautiful lady-in-waiting in an ancient Japanese “Pillow Book”, as stylistically perfect and lovely as light glittering among reeds on the Inland Sea at evening.

... Or is it a brilliant fake by the lovesick archeologist who pens the Introduction.... The presentation of the setting – an astonishingly recreated tenth century Japan – is as precise and evocative as the finest Japanese brush painting.
