Reviewer: Michael Dorris, (Chicago Tribune Books)

"'The Joy Luck Club' is that rare mesmerizing novel that one always seeks but seldom finds. Tracing the poignant destinies of two generations of tough, intelligent women, each gorgeously written page welcomes the reader and leads to an enlightenment that, like all true wisdom, sometimes brings pleasure and sometimes sadness.... writing that makes a difference, that alters the way we understand the world and ourselves, that transcends topicality, and by those criteria 'The Joy Luck Club' is the real thing."

Reviewer: Carolyn See, (Los Angeles Times Book Review)

"The only negative thing I could ever say about this book is that I'll never again be able to read it for the first time."

Reviewer: Alice Walker

"Honest, moving and beautifully courageous....[She shows us] the mystery of the mother-daughter bond in ways that we have not experienced before."
