(chuckle) It's hard NOT to admire Amy Tan: multi-talented, a great writer, and (when she wants to be) funny as an imp.
The latter quality often plays best when it emerges as an inside joke. Which is precisely how Amy plays it in this "raw footage" spoof, part of the promotion campaign now underway for Ms. Tan's new novel, "The Valley Of Amazement."
Watch --and enjoy-- as this gifted lady engages in a straight-face'd bit of deviltry. You might also notice she signals her intent early; that's a player piano she is using to showcase her "concert pianist" skills...
