Abstract

Amy Tan warrants a unique place in Chinese American literature as a result of her intriguing storytelling, which enriches the genre of fiction in its explorations of the connection between past and present and her characters’ struggles over family relations and identity construction. Through the richness of her artistic innovation and crafting, Tan has explored a new possibility for fiction writing and has enriched the literary tradition in the genre of novel writing in Chinese American literature. Her first novel The Joy Luck Club is a bestseller and has garnered her Commonwealth Club Gold Award for fiction, the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award for fiction, The American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults Award and was a finalist for the National Book Award. The novel explains not only the difficulties enfolding dual cultural identities, specifically Chinese-American but also transcends cultural conflicts by depicting the generational conflicts between mothers and daughters. The novel divided into sixteen interwoven stories describes the complex relationship between four sets of mothers and daughters, Suyuan Woo and Jing-mei Woo; Lindo Jong and Waverly Jong;  An-mei Hsu and Rose Hsu Jordan and Ying Ying St. Clair and Lena St. Clair. The present paper is an attempt to explore how the Chinese mothers resolve the friction caused by dual identities with the assistance of space- geographical, social, cultural, spiritual and personal.journal of english
