Dealer Notes
Hessell Tiltman takes her title from the Japense proverb, “The saddest thing in life is to be born a woman” (Title page). The novel draws on her own time living in post-war Japan. The PEN Hessell-Tiltman Award is awarded annually for a non-fiction book of specifically historical content, funded by a bequeath from the author.
