I am participating in the A-to-Z Challenge again this year. My theme is My Favorite Books. Most of the books I will be posting about, I have read more than once. After all, they are my favorites.
J is for The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.
The Joy Luck Club is Amy Tan’s first novel, published in 1989. It is the compelling story of four Chinese-American families in San Francisco. The relationships between the Chinese immigrant mothers and their American-born daughters is spot on, but of course with the difference of backgrounds.
Amy Tan has written several other books, of which I have read most of them. She writes with such emotion that you are completely drawn in to the characters and situation. And I learned a great deal about Chinese history and culture while reading her books.
Treat yourself, read this book!
