'An exciting, funny and thought-provoking story ! a masterful novel.' The Telegraph 'One can only admire Amy Tan for striking out into unchartered artistic lands.' Sarah Churchwell, Times Literary Supplement 'Sparkling ! a very funny book.' Metro 'Tan's compelling portrait of a drowning humanity, pain seeks us out in our hiding places, however far we would run.' Anita Sethi, Observer Praise for 'The Kitchen God's Wife': 'In this remarkable book Tan manages to illuminate the nobility of friendship and the necessity of humour. Give yourself over to the world she creates.' New York Times 'Once again this wonderful novel has extended experience. There is something dizzyingly elemental about Tan's storytelling; it melds the rich simplicities of fairytales with a delicate lyrical style.' Sunday Times 'Tan is a prodigal with her talent. She weaves a dazzling web of unfamiliar colours, smells, tastes and landscapes.' Sunday Telegraph 'Amy Tan writes with passion and humour, making East and West mutually more comprehensible.' Daily Mail Praise for 'The Bonesetter's Daughter': 'Compelling!exotic lands and the past lend themselves to poetry. Tan turns the familiar but harrowing accounts of pre-Communist Chinese women into a romantic and intriguing tale. LuLing is a classic Tan character, a resilient survivor who, like Olivia in The Hundred Secret Senses, betrays someone close to her with dire consequences.' Times Literary Supplement 'A classic [told with] originality and humourt!this is a delicious page-turner that keeps you guessing, laughing and crying until the end.' Sunday Express
