    AMY TAN (Tần Ái Mỹ) thuộc thế hệ nhà văn gốc Hoa đầu tiên thành công trên văn đàn Mỹ. Bà sinh năm 1952 tại California và thường viết về những gian nan mà phụ nữ người Hoa đã gặp ở quê nhà cũng như cuộc sống khó khăn mà con gái của họ gặp trên đất Mỹ. Bà thành công ngay với những tác phẩm đầu tiên, như The Joy Luck Club ('Phúc Lạc Hội', 1989; dựng thành phim năm 1991), và The Kitchen God's Wife ('Phu nhân Táo quân', 1991;), cả hai đều mang tính tự truyện. Sau đó bà còn viết The Hundred Secret Senses ('Trăm niềm ẩn thức', 1995) và The Bonesetter's Daughter ('Con gái thầy lang', 2000) và hai truyện thiếu nhi: The Moon Lady ('Chị Hằng', 1992) và The Chinese Siamese Cat ('Mèo xiêm Trung Quốc', 1994). Tác phẩm của bà đã được dịch nhiều ở Việt Nam.

    The Joy Luck Club
    (1989)
    by Amy Tan

    For readers of Amy Tan's bestselling novel, The Valley of Amazement, revisit her classic tale of mothers and daughters

    Four mothers, four daughters, four families whose histories shift with the four winds depending on who's "saying" the stories. 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. Rather than sink into tragedy, they choose to gather to raise their spirits and money. "To despair was to wish back for something already lost. Or to prolong what was already unbearable." Forty years later the stories and history continue.With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between mothers and daughters. As each woman reveals her secrets, trying to unravel the truth about her life, the strings become more tangled, more entwined. Mothers boast or despair over daughters, and daughters roll their eyes even as they feel the inextricable tightening of their matriarchal ties. Tan is an astute storyteller, enticing readers to immerse themselves into these lives of complexity and mystery.

    The Bonesetter's Daughter
    (1991)
    by Amy Tan

    Ruth Young and her widowed mother, LuLing, have always had a tumultuous relationship. Now, before she succumbs to forgetfulness, LuLing gives Ruth some of her writings, which reveal a side of LuLing that Ruth has never known. . . .

    In a remote mountain village where ghosts and tradition rule, LuLing grows up in the care of her mute Precious Auntie as the family endures a curse laid upon a relative known as the bonesetter. When headstrong LuLing rejects the marriage proposal of the coffinmaker, a shocking series of events are set in motion–all of which lead back to Ruth and LuLing in modern San Francisco. The truth that Ruth learns from her mother’s past will forever change her perception of family, love, and forgiveness.
