What I am Reading….

The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan

I have read a few of Amy Tan’s novels and enjoyed them immensely.  Her children’s books are also quite good.  The Opposite of Fate is a collection of non-fiction essays, mostly about writing.  The essays were not necessarily written with the intent of making a book.  Some were written to be delivered at speaking engagements.  Even accepting this fact, I still did not particularly enjoy this book.  It lacked the richness of language so prevalent in her fiction.  If one is curious about Tan’s writing process or more background on her personal life, the book is worth reading.
