The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan 080411109X 9780804111096
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


THE WISEST AND MOST CAPTIVATING NOVEL TAN HAS WRITTEN.--The Boston Sunday Globe TRULY MAGICAL . . . UNFORGETTABLE . . . The first-person narrator is Olivia Laguni, and her unrelenting nemesis from childhood on is her half-sister, Kwan Li. . . . It is Kwans haunting predictions, her implementation of the secret senses, and her linking of the present with the past that cause this novel to shimmer with meaning--and to leave it in the readers mind when the book has long been finished. --The San Diego Tribune HER MOST POLISHED WORK . . . Tan is a wonderful storyteller, and the storys many strands--Olivias childhood, her courtship and marriage, Kwans ghost stories and village tales--propel the work to its climactic but bittersweet end. --USA Today TAN HAS ONCE MORE PRODUCED A NOVEL WONDERFULLY LIKE A HOLOGRAM: turn it this way and find Chinese-Americans shopping and arguing in San Francisco; turn it that way and the Chinese of Changmian village in 1864 are fleeing into the hills to hide from the rampaging Manchus. . . . THE HUNDRED SECRET SENSES doesnt simply return to a world but burrows more deeply into it, following new trails to fresh revelations. --Newsweek
