Amy Tan: Weaver of Asian-American Tales
Enslow Publishers / 2010
Amy Tan is a best-selling novelist and perhaps the most famous Asian-American author today. While her work usually focuses on relationships between immigrant mothers from China and their American-born daughters, Tan's work has a mass appeal that cuts across lines of both culture and gender. Her novel The Joy Luck Club is one of the most well-known and appreciated works by a contemporary Asian-American author.
