Lisa Dalby writes a fictionalized account of the life of Murasaki Shikibu, author of the Tales of Genji, the world's first novel. I liked this book a great deal, although I thought it dragged a bit towards the end. Dalby provides a very colorful look at the upper echelons of Japanese society more than a millenium ago.
