Amy Tan has touched millions of readers with haunting and sympathetic novels of cultural complexity and profound empathy. She takes us on a journey from her childhood of tragedy and comedy to the present day and her arrival as one… of the world's best-loved novelists. Whether recalling arguments with her mother in suburban California or introducing us to the ghosts that inhabit her computer, Tan offers vivid portraits of choices, attitudes, charms, and luck in action--a refreshing antidote to the world-weariness and uncertainties we all face today. 2016.
