did not like it
bookshelves: asian, non-fiction, memoir
Read in October, 2007

Poorly conceived collection of occasional pieces about Tan's life and opinions. Her life is too much like her fictions, her opinions lack clarity and sense, and her mind lacks rigor. She tends to over dramatize her experience. She has section headings in the book, but they don't make any sense. This book had the effect of making me lose respect for Tan and like her novels less.
