Amy Tan

Weaver of Asian-American Tales

Series: Authors Teens Love

By Ann Angel

Amy Tan is a best-selling novelist and perhaps the most famous Asian-American author today. While her work usually focuses on relationships between immigrant mothers from China and their American-born daughters, Tan’s work has a mass appeal that cuts across lines of both culture and gender. Her novel THE JOY LUCK CLUB is one of the most well-known and appreciated works by a contemporary Asian-American author.

". . . very readable and inspiring . . . a valuable book in any school library . . ."

Southern Maine Library District, December 6, 2009

". . . the appended short interviews or collections of quotes do shed some light on the minds of those who make a living at their craft and will perhaps inspire would-be teen writers."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2009

"Strongly recommended for middle and high school libraries where author research projects exist. Personal interviews of Amy Tan added to numerous quotations in the text give a 'up close and personal' feel."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, March 2009

"Readers, middle school and up, will enjoy this volume, especially if they have aspirations to become writers."
