The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
Random House Group 1998

The Joy Luck Club is the story of four mothers and their first-generation Chinese-American daughters; two generations of women struggling to come to terms with their cultural identity. Amy Tan writes simply, with laughter always on the tip of her pen, and she is wise: through her eyes intolerable tragedies become part of life, to be accepted, remembered and honoured.
Amy Tan was born in California, the daughter of Chinese parents.
