"First published in the United States of America by G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1989. Published in Penguin Books 2016. This edition with a preface by Amy Tan published 2019."--Title page verso.
In 1949 four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, begin meeting to eat dim sum, play mahjong, and talk. United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan's debut novel--now widely regarded as a modern classic--examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between these four women and their American-born daughters. -- back cover
