The Joy Luck Club

Four mothers four daughters four families whose histories shift with the four winds depending on who's telling the stories In four Chinese women recent immigrants to San Francisco meet weekly to play mahjong and tell stories of what they left behind in China United in loss and new hope for their daughters' futures they call themselves the Joy Luck Club Their daught Why read The Joy Luck Club Because sometimes one needs to get in touch with his inner Chinese feminine side Amy Tan s most famous book offered ample opportunity in that regard The JLC is all about the relationships between Chinese moms and their daughters Honestly I picked this up as part of my studies into Chinese culture My brother has been teaching English over there for a few years now and I plan on visiting one day As per usual I like to read up on a place before the trip Some people say that spoils the surprise but I feel like I get out of the visit that way There always seems to be plenty of surprises when you travel to the other side of the world regardless of the prep workWas this useful for Chinese studies Not 100% The stories herein which are no doubt heavily indebted to Tan s personal experiences are not only fictional but they re also about the Chinese American experience A good deal of the book takes place in the US There are many old worldhome land stories and Tan does an excellent job including and describing Chinese customs and traditions It s just that most of the time they are tainted or at least touched by the hand of the West The relationships themselves and how they play out is for the most part satisfying Emotions sometimes run high and occasionally over There are laughs to be had in everyday misunderstandings The characters may be foreign to me but were nevertheless utterly relatable After all most everyone has a parent child relationship to relate to My own relationship with my mother was for better or worse close I may not be a woman or Chinese but that hardly matters as nothing was lost in Tan s translation of the mother child bond
