Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the same narrative skills and evocative powers that made her first novel, The Joy Luck Club, a national bestseller, Tan now tells the story of Winnie Louie, an aging Chinese woman unfolding a life's worth of secrets to her suspicious, Americanized daughter.

Review:

"The results...are mixed, entertaining in many respects but also cliched and predictable....what is most appealing about Ms. Tan's story is the humor and quirkiness of her characters....Amy Tan can probably do better. One hopes that she soon will." Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

Review:

"Tan is one of the prime storytellers writing fiction today." NEWSWEEK

Review:

"The kind of novel that can be read and reread with enormous pleasure." Chicago Tribune
