The Joy Luck Club by Amy TanFour mothers, four daughters, four families, whose histories shift with the four winds depending on whos telling the stories. In 1949, four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, meet weekly to play mahjong and tell stories of what they left behind in China. United in loss and new hope for their daughters futures, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. Their daughters, who have never heard these stories, think their mothers advice is irrelevant to their modern American lives – until their own inner crises reveal how much theyve unknowingly inherited of their mothers pasts.
With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between mothers and daughters. As each woman reveals her secrets, trying to unravel the truth about her life, the strings become more tangled, more entwined. Mothers boast or despair over daughters, and daughters roll their eyes even as they feel the inextricable tightening of their matriarchal ties. Tan is an astute storyteller, enticing readers to immerse themselves into these lives of complexity and mystery.
