Olivia Yee is only five years old when Kwan, her older sister from China, comes to live with the family and turns her life upside down, bombarding her day and night with ghostly stories of strange ancestors from the world of Yin. Olivia just wants to lead a normal American life.

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
