Read full description of the books:



Auf der Flucht vor ihrem Onkel, einem fanatischen Missionar, irrt die kleine Aurelia durch die Straßen von Miyako – bis sie Schutz findet im Haus des mächtigsten Teemeisters der Stadt. Er nimmt Aurelia auf, als Dienerin für seine Tochter Yukako. Bald schon unterweist Yukako sie heimlich im Teeweg und weckt damit den Zorn ihres Vaters, denn diese Kunst ist im Japan der 1870er Jahre allein Männern vorbehalten. Aurelia wird so zur ersten Frau aus dem Westen, die das alte Ritual zu zelebrieren versteht.

Die ergreifende Geschichte von zwei tapferen Frauen, einer außergewöhnlichen Freundschaft und einer großen Liebe – bildgewaltig in die dramatischste Phase der japanischen Geschichte versetzt.

Read information about the author

Ebook Die Teemeisterin read Online! The only writer ever to have received the American Library Association Stonewall Award for Fiction twice, Ellis Avery is the author of two novels, a memoir, and a book of poetry. Her novels, The Last Nude (Riverhead 2012) and The Teahouse Fire (Riverhead 2006) have also received Lambda, Ohioana, and Golden Crown awards, and her work has been translated into six languages. She teaches fiction writing at Columbia University and out of her home in the West Village.

Raised in Columbus, Ohio and Princeton, New Jersey, Avery’s first love as a reader was the high fantasy of J.R.R. Tolkien and Ursula K. LeGuin. In her teenage years, she discovered writers like Annie Dillard and Virginia Woolf, whose lush specificity tempted her back to the waking world.

Interested in the overlap between theater, anthropology, and religion, Avery pursued an independent major in Performance Studies at Bryn Mawr College, graduating in 1993. She spent the next few years in San Francisco working for queer youth organizations and earning an MFA in Writing from Goddard College’s low residency program. Drawn back to the seasons and architecture of the East Coast, she settled in New York in 1997, where she met her partner of fifteen years, Sharon Marcus.

After personally witnessing the devastation of September 11th, 2001, and the anti-war response that swept the city in its wake, Avery wrote her first book, a personal account of the attacks and their aftermath entitled The Smoke Week. She spent five years studying Japanese language and tea ceremony, including seven months in Kyoto, in order to write her first novel, The Teahouse Fire. A lifelong love of Paris in the 1920s led Avery to write her second novel, The Last Nude, a love letter to Sylvia Beach, founder of Shakespeare and Company bookshop and publisher of Ulysses; to Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast; and to the sleek Art Deco imagery of Tamara de Lempicka.
