“I learned by patience and persistence that everything has a point of balance. You just have to find it.”
– Amy Tan
Indulging in themes of heritage, family, and assimilation, Amy Tan is an author that captures lively storytelling. While most of her work speaks to the relationship between mother and daughter, all her works draw from her Chinese and American backgrounds. Some of Tan’s most notable works include The Joy Luck Club, The Kitchen God’s Wife, The Moon Lady, The Bonesetter’s Daughter, and The Valley of Amazement.
