I had read many of Amy Tan's books and was going away for a few days and staying at a "book hotel" in the Amy Tan room. I was inspired to listen to her memoir on my drive down. I loved the book because I enjoyed getting to learn about Tan as a person, her struggles, triumphs and experiences in life that led her to write her novels. It was very enriching to learn about her rich, complex, tumultuous past. It was intriguing to learn about her relationship with her mother and how complicated it was, yet loving and how they were able to work out their issues. I also love reading immigrant stories and experiences and while Tan herself is not an immigrant her parents were. A great insight into the life of a beloved author.
