喜福会 | The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

Four mothers, four daughters, four families, whose histories shift with the four winds depending on who's telling the stories. In 1949, four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, meet weekly to play mahjong and tell stories of what they left behind in China. United in loss and new hope for their daughters' futures, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. Their daughters, who have never heard these stories, think their mothers' advice is irrelevant to their modern American lives – until their own inner crises reveal how much they've unknowingly inherited of their mothers' pasts.

With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between mothers and daughters. As each woman reveals her secrets, trying to unravel the truth about her life, the strings become more tangled, more entwined. Mothers boast or despair over daughters, and daughters roll their eyes even as they feel the inextricable tightening of their matriarchal ties. Tan is an astute storyteller, enticing readers to immerse themselves into these lives of complexity and mystery.

《喜福会》是谭恩美的处女作,也是一部自传式小说,取材于她的母亲和外婆的经历。“喜福会”指的是每周举行一次的四家好友聚会。四个来自天南海北的中国女人带着各自多舛的命运,辗转来到美国,扎根生子。

一方面努力适应着异域的生活,为如何处理与女儿的关系而困惑、操心;一方面仍然割不断与故国的血脉联系。她们的童年际遇各异,年轻时代经历了战乱导致的颠沛流离,遭到命运种种有意或无意的嘲弄,最终虽然怀着母爱,但在面对与自己成长环境和思维方式都迥异的下一代时,不可避免地要面对各种各样的隔阂。

主人公吴菁妹原来跟母亲有很深的误会,当她代替已去世的母亲回到中国探望两个当年在战乱中失散的姐姐时,深深感受到上一代的苦难和割舍不了的亲情。
