The Joy Luck Club

In 1949 four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, begin meeting to eat dim sum, play mahjong, and talk. United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan's debut novel-now widely regarded as a modern classic-examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between these four women and their American-born daughters.
