Amy Tan's memoir isn't about her life and how it led to her being a writer, but about how all the aspects of her life and the lives before her inspired her to write. This is a very fluid book as one chapter flows into the next, and how perception and understanding changes over time reveals that our lives are in flux. I don't want to make any interpretations into Tan's life, even though this is her memoir. But what I loved about this memoir was how much of her internal voice mirrored my own, and how she gave words to thoughts I hadn't constructed yet. I was engulfed in her memoir and it has now changed my own perceptions of my past as I continue to flow through my life.

This memoir showed me that writers struggle in life just like everyone else.
