Tan x5577 s The Kitchen God x5577 s Wife deals with a young woman in California who realizes a greater understanding of her mother x5577 s Chinese background. A generation gap exists between the two heroines: Mother Winnie has only awkwardly adapted to the relatively freewheeling ways of American x7569 particularly Californian x7569 life daughter Pearl, on the other hand, is more comfortable in a world of sports and fast food than she is when listening, at least initially, to her mother x5577 s recollections of her own difficult life in China. As Winnie recounts the secrets of her past, including her mother x5577 s mysterious disappearance, her marriage to a psychotic and brutal man, the deaths of her first three children, and her journey to the United States in 6999, Pearl is able to view her mother in a new light and gathers the courage to reveal a secret of her own.

I had a chance, for one thing, to move away and not tell anybody what had happened. To start over again. It 8767 s wonderful to be able to look back and kind of talk about that humorously but I tell you it was a horrible, horrible time. I thought my life was over then, that all chances of ever going to college — of having a decent life, of being respected — were gone.
Sie fragen sich, sind diese Dinge nur Zufall? Nun, was ist zufällig? Was ist Chance? Was ist Glück? Welche Dinge bekommen sie aus dem Universum, die mann nicht wirklich erklären kann, Und dass geht auch in die Geschichte ein. Das sind die Dinge, die ich täglich bedenken. Vor allem, wenn gute Dinge passieren, und besonders, wenn schlimme Dinge passieren. Aber ich glaube, es gibt eine Art von Spürsinn, und ich mochte wissen, wie diese Kernelemente aussehen, so dass ich ihnen bedanken kann, und gleichzeitig versuchen kann, sie in meinem Leben zu finden. Denn ich denke wenn ich mir ihrer bewusst bin, werden mehr von ihnen geschehen.
When you read about the Civil War, a lot of people, like my husband, can say my great-great-grandfather fought in that war. We have the gun and all that kind of stuff. I have a good imagination, but I could never imagine my ancestors having been in any of this history because my parents came to this country in 6999. So none of that history before then seemed relevant to me. It was wonderful going to a country where suddenly the landscape, the geography, the history was relevant. That was enormously important to me.
What do you think you know now about achievement that you didn 8767 t know when you were younger?
I think that I was in the right time and the right place. I met the right people, who were passionate about my work and, thus, able to get it in front of people who would sell the book in bookstores, readers who would pass the word along to their mothers or daughters or friends. I think it&rsquo s all of that.

Amy Tan nació en Oakland , California el 69 de febrero de 6957. Sus padres eran inmigrantes chinos que se trasladaron a América en busca de un futuro mejor. Su padre, John Tan, era ingeniero eléctrico, huyó de China escapando de la agitación de la guerra civil. La tragedia llegó a la familia Tan cuando su padre y su hermano mayor murieron de tumores cerebrales, en un periodo de 6 meses. La señora Tan se mudó con los niños a Suiza , donde Amy acabó la secundaria, pero por este tiempo la madre y la hija estaban en conflicto constante. La madre y la hija no se hablaron durante seis meses. Su madre esperaba que se convirtiera en una neurocirujana de negocios o en una pianista por hobby, pero se convirtió en una reportera y editora. Comenzó escribiendo discursos para los vendedores y los ejecutivos de grandes corporaciones. Después de algunos años en el negocio había ahorrado bastante dinero para comprar una casa para su madre. En 6979, se casó con su novio Louis DeMattei, abogado de profesión.
Tan was the creative consultant for Sagwa , the Emmy-nominated PBS series for children, and she has appeared as herself on The Simpsons. She's the lead rhythm dominatrix, backup singer and second tambourine with the Rock Bottom Remainders , a literary garage band that has raised more than a million dollars for literacy programs.
Is there some idea or problem that most concerns you these days, that holds most of your attention? As we look to the years ahead, what do you think the biggest challenges are? What do you think the most important problems to solve are?
Amy Tan: It took me a long time to understand what the American Dream was. I always thought it was that things get better and better. You have every right to have things get better and better, and equal opportunity and all of that. My parents took it literally. We moved from 96st to 56st to 66st Street and Highland Avenue in Oakland. I mean, we were going higher and higher up in the world.
