Millionaires, surgeons, serial killers, CEOs: I light their cigarettes, mix their drinks. We engage in conversation. I am the facilitator of good times. I am a hostess.
Four years ago then 21-year-old Canadian model Chelsea Haywood and her Australian husband decided they would move to Tokyo for three months. Within a week they had arrived and Chelsea had landed the job of a hostess in a Japanese club.
In 90-Day Geisha Chelsea takes you on a riveting journey into the surreal world of Tokyo hostessing. Meet the collection of kooks, crazies, weird, delusional, cheeky and strangely compelling men who cross the threshold of the Greengrass hostess club. Experience expensive dohans, excessive shopping sprees, the art of 'bottling', luxury weekends away with men whose last names are unknown and Roppongi's 24-hour nightlife.
Step into a world spawned from the traditional institution of the geisha- a subculture that is alen and bewildering to many Westerners. Chelsea starts out full of unsuspecting enthusiasm, until her life is turned upside down and her one constant- her marriage- hangs in the balance.
90-Day Geisha is a fast-paced modern-girl's story that will leave you laughin, astounded, fascinated and booking yourself on the next flight to Tokyo.Chelsea Haywood born in remote British Columbia with an insatiable appetite for the rasison d'etre, Chelsea Haywood has travelled the world independently and as a fashion model since she was sixteen.
