Amy Tan: ‘The valley of amazement’

15 september 2014

One of the great storytellers of American literature, Amy Tan, visits Amsterdam with a sprawling epic of mother-daughter relationship, abandonment, love and betrayal.

Since her debut in 1989, _The Joy Luck Club_, her novels have all been _New York Times_ bestsellers, as well as the recipient of many awards. Her new novel and the first in eight years, _The Valley of Amazement_, is told from the point of view of a part-American girl raised among the courtesans of Shanghai in the first years of the twentieth century.

It is a moving and redemptive story that illustrates the humble status of women in Chinese society.
