I have a daughter-in-law who was born in Shanghai and came to this country in her early 20's. Amy Tan's books are a joy to read and I see so much of my own Chinese relatives-by-marriage in her stories. I also see the relationships between mothers and daughters and fathers and daughters that I have observed in my own Americanized daughter-in-law and her parents. These books move me to laughter and tears as they give me insight into the culture my granddaughter now shares with her American father and Chinese mother. It is a complex one that she will have to negotiate, loving both sides. With an American husband and parents from Shanghai, My daughter-in-law has also had to make many adjustments to create a happy home and good marriage as she walks between these 2 cultures. Amy Tan captures the nuances beautifully.
