"Amy Tan, says Newsweek, is 'a wonderful writer with a rare power to touch the heart.' Now, in The Hundred Secret Senses, she uses her characteristic wisdom, grace, and humor to conjure a story of the inheritance of love, its secrets and senses, its illusions and truth. Set in San Francisco and in a remote village of southern China, this is a tale of American pragmatism shaken, and soothed, by Chinese ghosts. What proof of love do we seek between mother and daughter, among sisters, lovers, and friends? What are its boundaries and failings? Can love go beyond 'Until death do us part'? And if so, which aspects haunt us like regretful ghosts?" [from the dust jacket]
