Abstract:

Set in contemporary San Francisco and in a Chinese village where Peking Man is unearthed, "The Bonesetter's Daughter" is an excavation of the human spirit: the past, its deepest wounds, its most profound hopes. This is the story of LuLing Young, who searches for the name of her mother, the daughter of the famous Bonesetter from the Mouth of the Mountain. The story conjures the pain of broken dreams, the power of myths, and the strength of love that enables us to recover in memory what we have lost in grief.

Immersion

by Junisahn (WorldCat user published 2006-04-12) Excellent Permalink
Reading The Bonesetter's Daughter, like reading all of Amy Tan's books, is truly like taking a trip. Upon finishing this book, I felt absolute exhaustion from the emotional journey, fueled by stunning imagery: it is possible to "see" this book. IMO, this is Tan's best work to date.
