megancrewe: Seeking recommendations

I'm going on a bit of a non-fiction kick, and I'm looking for suggestions. I'd particularly like to read accounts of different cultures and societies, anthropological or historical, anything that gives a vivid picture of life in another time and/or place. Non-fiction tends to be a bit hard for me, so the more lively and engaging the narrative, the better.

I like books by adeline yen-mah, perhaps a book ' Dragon Empress' by seagrave I think. One more book into chinese culture. I think 'The Good Woman of China'. I particularly liked the last one, very touching


Yes, and memoirs of a geisha is really good.
