Amy Tan: A Literary Companion (McFarland Literary Companions) by Mary Ellen Snodgrass

In the mid-1980s, Amy Tan was a successful but unhappy corporate speechwriter. By the end of the decade, she topped the best-seller lists with The Joy Luck Club, with equally popular novels to follow. Once unfairly pigeonholed as an ethnic writer with limited appeal, Tan actually explores universal themes that cross cultural and ideological boundaries, and her novels have proven wildly successful with readers of all stripe. Tender, sincere, complex, honest and uncompromising in its portrayal of Chinese culture and its effect on women, Tans work has earned her praise from critics and adoration from fans, as well as a place among Americas most notable modern writers.
