Summary and Info
With the publication of her first novel in 1989, The Joy Luck Club, Amy Tan was immediately recognized as a major contemporary novelist. Her work has received a great deal of attention and acclaim from feminist critics, and is very much concerned with issues of matrilineage and the ultimate triumphant over female victimization. The title, Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, part of Chelsea House Publishers’ Modern Critical Interpretations series, presents the most important 20th-century criticism on Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club through extracts of critical essays by well-known literary critics. This collection of criticism also features a short biography on Amy Tan, a chronology of the author’s life, and an introductory essay written by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University.
