Jocelyn (The Reading World)

I love to read and can get very attached to my opinions, but recently I've been learning not to completely lose my head when people disagree with me, so feel safe to argue with me whenever you wish ;) 


The Joy Luck Club - Amy Tan

Tentatively put to TBR, but I have reservations because I wonder if any (prominent) Asian American female writer can ever write something that DOESN'T have boatloads of racial/immigration/cultural trauma and emotional pain and on and on and on. Why is it that we expect minority groups to give their inherently diminished special "minority view," but white writers are praised for writing outside their cultural sphere? 'Cause the white perspective is universal I guess?

This articulates my feelings on that much better.
