Product Details


“A beautiful book…what fascinates in The Kitchen God’s Wife is not only the insistent storytelling but the details of Chinese life and tradition; not only how people lived but how their sensibility shines through, most notably in their speech. Amy Tan has a command with language in which event and concrete perception jump into palpable metaphor, and images from the daily world act like spiritual agents.” —Los Angeles Times

“Remarkable…mesmerizing…compelling…. An entire world unfolds in Tolstoyan tide of event and detail….Give yourself over to the world Ms. Tan creates for you.” —The New York Times Book Review
