I fell in love with Amy (anyone remember the song, "Once in Love with Amy"?) after reading THE JOY LUCK CLUB, and my affection deepened after meeting her at Oakley and Barbara Hall's incomparable parties. Her humanity, gift with words, and gorgeous imagery have kept me entranced, but BONESETTER'S DAUGHTER has a depth and resonance that I can't define. The best way I can express it is to put it in a league with THE STORY OF EDGAR SAWTELLE. The two novels have nothing in common except that ineffable ability to touch the spirit. These are the books that astonish, that you carry with you forever. Ann Seymour, Sausalito, CA
