People don't seem to realize that this is not the actual novel! "Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club (Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations Series) Is a book of literary analysis of the novel by other authors and literary critics. I'm writing a research paper that will focus on "A Pair of Tickets", the final chapter of the novel and picked up a copy of this book from my local library. The contributors give some extremely detailed opinions on various aspects of the book,such as the theme, characterization, etc. which is much more than my usual types of college reading. Still, It has some interesting perspectives on the novel and I will be using this book as one of my sources.
