1 Tan, Amy The Bonesetter's Daughter
New York, NY, U.S.A. Putnam's 2001 0399146857 / 9780399146855 Limited First Edition Cloth SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Near Fine slipcase. Bound in full brown cloth. The spine panel and both boards, decorative, are lushly stamped in gilt. Dark red endpapers. 353pps. No dustjacket, as issued. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square and bright. All tips are sharp. The text is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The slipcase, of the same brown cloth, is faintly rubbed and has an unobtrusive black ink-mark on its base. This is one of only 200 copies, specially bound, that have been SIGNED and numbered by the author on a limitation page.


"Set in contemporary San Francisco and in a Chinese village where Peking Man is unearthed, 'The Bonesetter's Daughter' is an excavation of the human spirit: the past, its deepest wounds, its most profound hopes. This is the story of LuLing Young, who searches for the name of her mother, the daughter of the famous Bonesetter from the Mouth of the Mountain. The story conjures the pain of broken dreams, the power of myths, and the strength of love that enables us to recover in memory what we have lost in grief."

2 Tan, Amy The Joy Luck Club
New York, NY, U.S.A. Putnam's 1989 0399134204 / 9780399134203 Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Very Good in a Near Fine dustjacket. Light blue boards quarterbound in green cloth. Both the spine and the decorative front board are gilt-stamped. Light blue endpapers. 288pps. This is an association copy SIGNED by the author to fellow author Joyce Chen and dated 24 Oct, '89. Later printing. Modest wear to the extremities. The board-edges are faintly sunned. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. No reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of crinkling at the head of the spine and the upper tips; there is also a 1/8" closed tear at the top of the rear panel. No other flaws. The original price of $18.95 is intact on the front flap.

"...In 1949 four Chinese women -- drawn together by the shadow of their past -- begin meeting in San Francisco to play mah jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and 'say' stories. They call their gathering the Joy Luck Club. Nearly forty years later, one of the members has died, and her daughter has come to take her place, only to learn of her mother's lifelong wish -- and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation of this secret unleashes an urgent need among the women to reach back and remember."

3 Tan, Amy The Joy Luck Club
London Heinemann 1989 0434756067 / 9780434756063 First Edition Hardcover 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Red boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. 288pps. First U. K. printing. There is a mild bump to the heel of the spine and the pages are uniformly yellowed (common with this issue). Also, there is a small, unobtrusive crimp to the lower corners of thirty or so pages near the center of the book. Otherwise clean, tight, and square. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is price-clipped (thus Near Fine); as new, else. A nice copy of the author's highly-acclaimed first novel.

"A stunning literary achievement, 'The Joy Luck Club' explores the tender and tenacious bond between four daughters and their mothers. The daughters know one side of their mothers, but they don't know about their earlier never-spoken of lives in China. The mothers want love and obedience from their daughters, but they don't know the gifts that the daughters keep to themselves. Heartwarming and bittersweet, this is a novel for mother, daughters, and those that love them."
