An excellent story well told.,

This review is from: The Kitchen God's Wife (Flamingo) (Hardcover)
Having recently read Wild Swans it whet my appetite for more books with a chinese theme. Reading The Kitchen God's Wife certainly did not disappoint. Amy Tan tells the story of family and its different generations, one born and reared in China and one in the US. Members of both generations have their own secrets which are eventually unwoven throughout the book. Told with such heart-rending humour - you will certainly be moved to laughter or tears, or both!
