FICTION: The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan Encompassing two generations and a rich blend of Chinese and American history, the story of four struggling, strong women also reveals their daughter's memories and feelings.
Let’s Kill Til It’s Dead: The Myth That Mom’s Salary Pays For Childcare, by Ester Bloom. Choice quote: "When we assume women alone should shoulder the price of childcare — which is, by the way, often extravagant — we are saying, as a culture, that women are still and primarily responsible for the home front. That that’s their real job and whatever outside work they do is secondary, disposable, temporary."
This has been my last reading, which I thought would be very funny. Instead, I found a moving book about two quite different cultures (American and Chinese) as well as a reflection about the past, the present and how experiences and feelings are shared between mothers and daughters.
