Item description for Mi nombre es Sei Shonagon (My name is Sei Shonagon) by Jan Blensdorf...

Above a small incense shop in modern Tokyo, where incense is still made slowly ground by hand, a young woman listens to men unburden themselves about their work-dominated lives. "Sei Shonagon," as she calls herself, is a young woman who, as a child moved to Japan from America to live with her strict, tradition-obsessed uncle after the death of her parents. This exquisite first novel tells the story of a woman's rebellion against the constraints of Japanese society, where the collision of twenty-first century Capitalism and a deeply traditional sexual morality conspire to keep men and women docile.

Description in Spanish: En la catica ciudad de Tokio hay una habitacin situada sobre una tienda de incienso en la que una misteriosa mujer escucha detrs de un biombo las palabras de cualquier extrao que se acerque hasta ella. Y todos abandonan el lugar extraamente reconfortados.

Slo un joven francs apasionado por los jardines nipones llegar a descubrir y a amar a la verdadera Sei Shonagon, una joven que tras quedarse hurfana tuvo que trasladarse de Estados Unidos a Japn y aprender a adaptarse a la rigidez de su nueva vida.

Mi nombre es Sei Shonagon es la historia de una mujer que se aferra a la belleza de las tradiciones y al valor de la palabra como medio para propagar comprensin y humanidad.
