PENELOPE BASS

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing

Author Amy Tan returns to the storytelling territory of her acclaimed debut novel, The Joy Luck Club, with a new sprawling epic in The Valley of Amazement. Covering more than 40 years across two continents, the book follows the fall of China’s last imperial dynasty and the rise of the Republic, along with the lives of foreigners settling in the region and courtesans in working houses. Tan retains her knack for perfectly marrying the epic with the intimate.
