A New York Times Bestselling Author

Spanning more than forty years and two continents‚ The Valley of Amazement transports readers from the collapse of China’s last imperial dynasty to the beginning of the Republic and recaptures the lost world of old Shanghai through the inner workings of courtesan houses and the lives of the foreigners living in the International Settlement. A deeply evocative narrative of the profound connections between mothers and daughters‚ imbued with Tan’s characteristic insight and humor‚ The Valley of Amazement conjures a story of inherited trauma‚ desire and deception‚ and the power and obstinacy of love.
