Author Info
Amy Tan
Tan's mother was a nurse, her father a minister who died when Amy was 15. The family moved to Switzerland but returned to California after a few years, where Tan attended San Jose State. After college, she married and held a variety of writing and editing jobs. A self-confessed workaholic, Tan also took up fiction writing (as well as jazz piano) and began chronicling the lives of Chinese-American women like the ones she had known growing up. Her staggeringly successful first novel, THE JOY LUCK CLUB, was published in 1989 and made into a film for which Tan co-wrote the screenplay.
Praise
"A fine novel.... exuberant storytelling and rich drama."
"'The Kitchen God's Wife' is bigger, bolder and, I have to say, better."
"Tan has transcended herself again."

Winnie tells the story of how she escaped a horrible marriage to a cowardly fighter pilot in the Sino-Japanese war and how he may or may not be Pearl's father. Meanwhile Pearl gathers the strength confide her great secret, that she has multiple sclerosis, to her mother.
