26 quotes from The Hundred Secret Senses: ‘We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming - well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate.’
amy tan is the author of four critically acclaimed, internationally bestselling novels.

The Joy Luck Club was also adapted into a feature film in 1994. Her subsequent novels are The Kitchen God’s Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses, and The Bonesetter’s Daughter. She lives in San Francisco and New York.Narrated mostly from the point of view of Olivia, but interspersed with Kwan’s fantastic stories, The Hundred Secret Senses is a novel about two sisters and their complicated relationship. As Olivia struggles with her failing marriage, Kwan is her constant companion, whether Olivia likes it or not. Olivia is removed from her Chinese heritage and embarrassed by Kwan’s stilted English and superstitious beliefs. But despite her best efforts to dismiss Kwan’s stories, Olivia finds herself drawn into a world where dead people speak, the past becomes entwined with the present, and fate seems unavoidable."The Hundred Secret Senses doesn't simply return to a world but burrows more deeply into it, following new trails to fresh revelations."--Newsweek
Tan has once more produced a novel somewhat like a hologram: turn it this way and find Chinese-Americans shopping and arguing in San Francisco; turn it that way and the Chinese of Changmian village in 1864 are fleeing into the hills to hide from the rampaging Manchus.... The Hundred Secret Senses doesn't simply return to a world but burrows more deeply into it, following new trails to fresh revelations.
