Review of 'The Kitchen God's Wife'

The Kitchen God's Wife by Amy Tan

A wonderfully crafted novel beginning with two perspectives: a mother and her daughter's. The novel takes the form of the mother confessing her life story, explaining in the process the reasons for her behaviour. The main part of the story is set in Los Angeles where they live but most of the story being told takes place in pre and post-war China. Very entertaining and often extremely touching. A great read.

Rating: “It is OK but I have some issues”

Genre: General Fiction
