I just finished The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan. It’s unusual for me to read nonfiction. It’s even more unusual for me to read autobiographical nonfiction. For me to read autobiographical nonfiction by an author whose fiction I’ve never read is unheard of. Yet that’s what I did.
The Opposite of Fate is an interesting look into the head of a modern American writer. Sure, she gets extra points just for singing in a band with Stephen King, but it was really the stories about her mother that won me over. I’m going to add The Joy Luck Club to the list of books that I need to read someday.
