Most of us were required to read "The Joy Luck Club" in grade school. It was a wonderful book but my appreciate for the author was set in stone while listening to my routine NPR on my way home from work. Amy Tan made me laugh and sigh and wish I could write a book. I found it most interesting when she explained that her mom read her book and no longer felt the need to explain things because her daughter understood her better than she thought. Such a beautiful and interesting life story! I tried to add the link but it wasn't working but 10/10 I recommend listening to the audio.
