Author Bio
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.
