The Joy Luck Clubby Amy Tan
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
When June's mother dies, she is invited to join a long-standing club of Chinese women who urge her not only to take her mother's place at the mah-jongg table, but also to carry the news of her mother's death to her step-sisters in China. Through the stories of the women and their daughters, the values of different generations are articulated. June's anxiety about her responsibility to the past is contrasted with the older women's concerns that their values and culture are being lost by their Americanized daughters.
"So beutifully written that one should...allow oneself to be bourne along as if in a dream...a jewel of a book." The New York Times Book Review
"The Joy Luck Club is a pure joy to read." Chicago Tribune
