A thousand years ago, a Japanese woman began writing a story that was not quite fiction, not quite non-fiction, telling the story of the world of the Japanese imperial court but creating its own world, too—the world of Genji. The shining Genji, a man of wealth and power, devotes himself to love at the risk of losing everything. Enter the court of medieval Japan, and follow Genji's attempts to find perfect love and a beautiful life in the midst of the back-stabbing, scheming and deceit of the powerful people around him.
