PressestimmenThe Joy Luck Club was formed of four Chinese women recently moved to San Francisco who meet to eat dim sum, play mahjong and to share stories. Forty years on they and their daughters tell wise and witty tales of hope, loss, family and history. Spanning pre-Revolutionary China to 1980s San Francisco, the women talk as secrets are spilled, mothers boast and despair and daughters struggle with tangled truths.
