Although Tan's performance is solid, she sometimes doesn't have the skill and flair demonstrated by Wu and Bean, who offer up more nuanced readings. Still, Tan's performance more than does justice to her novel and its characters. An Ecco hardcover. (Nov.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
