This is the second book of Amy Tan, from three that I read or attempted to read completely and I couldn't.
She is repeating herself in many respects, except "Saving Fish from Drowning", describing
the same "tricks" of her mother and how it affected Amy Tan. The impression is that she tries in all of her books convince herself that she forgave her mother for all the humiliation. And so she s "digging" in the past of her parents, trying to justify, sometimes not amenable to any excuses, despite the difficulties, mental illness, grief and misfortune, the behaviour of her mother.
The book will be of great benefit to those who write a review about the works of Amy Tan.
