      Amy Tan: The Joy Luck Club Four mothers, four daughters, four families whose histories shift with the four winds depending on who's "saying" the stories. In 1949 four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, begin meeting to eat dim sum, play mahjong, and talk. United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club.

      "She will fight me, because this is the nature of two tigers. But I will win and give her my spirit, because this is the way a mother loves her daughter.” ― Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club

      The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan...the book, with the great movie to follow, focused on Chinese immigrant women, their younger daughters, and their juxtaposed lives which showed how life was over there, and then here...Amy Tan is a talented writer, but she also opened our eyes to have pride in our heritage, and to not forget the price paid by our immigrant mothers....

      The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan - this is my favorite by Amy Tan so far, but I have not read all of her work yet. This novel, The Bonesetter's Daughter and her Kindle single: Rules for Virgins, have shown me that she is an author well worth buying and reading.

      The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. Pinner writes: "Secrets abound in this richly historical novel that weaves threads through the lives of 5 friends their daughters as they recount surviving their harrowing childhoods in war-torn China. Tan's vignettes of overbearing Chinese immigrant mothers their resentful, guilt-ridden American daughters struck a universal note of cultural generational dissonance turned into a dazzling success."
