9780002240352: The Hundred Secret Senses

When Olivia's older half-sister from China moves into her bedroom, she turns her world upsidedown. Kwan tells her secrets about the world of yin, stories of ghosts who were bandit maidens, missionaries and mercenaries in another time. Amy Tan is also the author of "The Joy Luck Club".

Review:

‘Tan’s women sparkle and sing off the page. I longed for even more of Kwan – a gorgeously feisty portrait of a Chinese-American housewife, chattering as loudly about the mole on her husband’s testicles as the price of pickle-turnips. Kwan is a breathtaking creation.’ Julie Myerson, Independent on Sunday

‘The sheer buoyancy of Tan’s writing, the gutsy humour and the sheer verve of the narrative as it bounces along, from modern San Francisco to nineteenth-century China, is entrancing.’ Iain Finlayson, Financial Times

‘A wonderful story, told with wit, humour and enormous intelligence. Literary prizes and critical acclaim should be heaped on Amy Tan’s head.’ Marie Claire
