LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Sydney.: Random House.. 2006.. Map, photographic plates, xiv + 306pp, glossary, index, paperback. This dramatic portrayal of a modern-day oriental fairytale turned on its head, details how Masako Owada struggles with the daily pressures of life in Japan's imperial court. Despite an Oxford and Harvard education, she has been subjected to the superstitious rites of the Royal Household Agency in the hope that she will produce a male heir and prevent the world's oldest dynasty from dying out; must address her husband as 'Mr East Wing'; and bow at 60 degrees to her parents-in-law. With every move monitored closely by an overbearing bureaucracy behind the walls of a palace modelled on Versailles, where her few officially sanctioned pastimes include writing sonnets, Masako's figure radiates despair as she tries to forge a modern life within the tightly controlled realm of the palace.
