Best-selling author Amy Tan, U.S.-born to immigrant Chinese parents, found success with her first novel, The Joy Luck Club — later a widely praised film. She then wrote The Kitchen God’s Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses, The Bonesetter’s Daughter and Saving Fish from Drowning; all award winners and New York Times best sellers. Her children’s book Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat, was adapted into an Emmy-nominated animated series. Her short story “Immortal Heart” was staged and performed throughout the U.S. and France.

Tan has contributed to The New Yorker, Harper’s Bazaar and National Geographic and her work has been translated into 35 languages. Her short stories and essays are required reading in many high schools and universities.
