Genre Food in literature
Pages 108
ISBN OCLC:841811189
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: With the feminist approach to The Joy Luck Club and The Kitchen God's Wife, food imagery functions as a means for female characters' quest for self-identity and personal sovereignty. Chinese immigrant mothers are portrayed with images of resilience that demonstrate their strength as survivors of brutal patriarchal marriages. With the women's networking and their mutual support through food traditions, they discover how to be more assertive, liberating themselves rather than enduring seemingly grim fates. Through the presentation of food, the eating of the food and the kitchen as the site of creativity, the mothers learn to break their silence, retell their experiences of survival and share their past mistakes with their Chinese American daughters, hoping to pass their strength and wisdom on to the next generation through food traditions.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Shanghai, 1912. De veertienjarige Violet Minturn wordt gedwongen om een `maagdelijke courtisane te worden, maar als half-Chinese, half-Amerikaanse ontpopt ze zich daarentegen tot een gewiekste zakenvrouw die handelt in verleiding en illusie. Ook Violets moeder Lucia worstelt met deze half-westerse, half-oosterse identiteit. Beide vrouwen weigeren zich neer te leggen bij de Chinese sociale verwachtingen en ideeën over het lot en volharden in hun streven om terug te krijgen wat hun ontnomen is: respect, een veilige toekomst, en bovenal liefde. Achter hun successen schuilt een verlangen naar geborgenheid en een strijd om te begrijpen wie ze werkelijk zijn. In een ontroerend verhaal, dat meer dan veertig jaar en twee continenten beslaat, leidt Amy Tan haar lezers terug naar het Shanghai van weleer. Met haar kenmerkende wijsheid, sierlijkheid en humor roept Tan een verhaal op over de persoonlijke zoektocht van Violet en haar moeder, over familiegeheimen, de nalatenschap van traumas, en de diepe connectie tussen moeders en dochters. Vallei van verwondering is gebaseerd op Tans eigen familiegeschiedenis. Amy Tan is de auteur van De vreugde- en gelukclub, De vrouw van de keukengod, De honderd geheime zintuigen, De dochter van de heelmeester, Vissen op het droge helpen en haar autobiografische familiegeschiedenis De keerzijde van het lot. Haar werk is vertaald in meer dan dertig talen. Ze woont in New York en San Francisco. Over De dochter van de heelmeester: `Tan heeft een ongekend talent. Ze is in staat the best of both worlds, de westerse ironie en de oosterse verbeeldingskracht, te combineren, en daarbij haar verhalen te laten zinderen van spanning. NRC Handelsblad Over De honderd geheime zintuigen: `Toegankelijk taalgebruik en een verteltrant die meer vaart heeft dan de Oriënt Express. Algemeen Dagblad `Een schitterend epos. Elsevier Over De vrouw van de keukengod: `Met De vrouw van de keukengod overtreft Amy Tan haar briljante debuutroman. Haagsche Courant
