Synopsis

'The Joy Luck Club is an ambitious saga that's impossible to read without wanting to call your Mum' Stylist



Discover Amy Tan's moving and poignant tale of immigrant Chinese mothers and their American-born daughters.



In 1949 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 daughters, who have never heard these stories, think their mothers' advice is irrelevant to their modern American lives - until their own inner crises reveal how much they've unknowingly inherited of their mothers' pasts.
