Summary

In 1987, Amy Tan had already built a successful career as a freelance writer for well-known companies and corporations. However, though her work was lucrative, she still felt unsatisfied—until she tried to write fiction. Tan realized that she needed to express the things that mattered to her. Two years later, The Joy Luck Club hit bookstores, and Amy Tan, the daughter of immigrant parents from China, became a household name. She had written stories about real issues in her life and the lives of her parents: growing up as a Chinese American, the difficulty and challenges of starting over in a new country, and the tragedy of loss. Amy Tan is an inspiring biography of a woman whose own life is as arresting as that of one of her protagonists. Readers will find out how Tan followed her voice and became a beloved writer who touched the lives of people of all ethnic and racial backgrounds everywhere.
