Intro for November 22, 2013
We interviewed Amy Tan yesterday on The Social. I’ve been a fan a long, long time. Tan is currently promoting her new novel The Valley Of Amazement. It is once again a portrait of a mother-daughter relationship set in a courtesan community in Shanghai over a hundred years ago. So it’s a story about family, sex, and gossip. Obviously I’m all over it. Because the book is good (am currently about half way through) but also because Amy Tan is awesome.
She’s saucy. She’s cheeky. She’s hilarious. She’s super, super stylish. Did you see her in head to toe Issey Miyake, whaaaaaaaaaaat? Also, did you know she’s in a cover band called The Rock Bottom Remainders with other writers like Stephen King and Mitch Albom? They only play for charity. She’s the “lead rhythm dominatrix”. This KILLS me.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
