Imagine That

The Joy Luck Club - Amy Tan This is a beautiful book, full of beautiful stories that center around four Chinese women (pre 1949) and their lives in China before they come to America, settle in California and have daughters of their own. Now their daughters are grown Chinese-American women, each with their own story to tell.

Seperately each of these tales is powerful and moving in it's own right but woven together they form a rich, evocative tapestry that gently, gracefully illuminates the bond, often threadbare, that exists between generations and vastly different cultures.

I love the way the author allows the reader to find their own connection, their own enlightenment in this narrative of fierce love and misunderstanding.
