Overview of Joy Luck Club - Amy Tan, New Edition

With the publication in 1989 of her first novel, The Joy Luck Club, Amy Tan was immediately recognized as a major contemporary novelist. Her work explores the lives of the women in four Chinese-American families as the daughters struggle to fulfill or reject the cultural and familial expectations placed on them.

Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations, a series of more than 100 volumes, presents the best current criticism on the most widely read and studied poems, novels, and dramas of the Western world, from Oedipus Rex and The Iliad to such modern and Contemporary works as William Faulkener's The Sound and the Fury and Don DeLillo's White Noise. Each volume opens with an introductory essay and editor's note by Harold Bloom and includes a bibliography, a chronology of the writer's life and works, and notes on the contributors. Taken together, Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations provides a comprehensive critical guide to the most vital and influential works of the Western literary tradition.
