Amy Tan was born into a family that believed in fate. In The Opposite of Fate: A Book of Musings, she explores this legacy, as well as American circumstances, and finds ways to honor the past while creating her own brand of destiny. She discovers answers in everyday actions and attitudes - from writing stories and decorating her house with charms, to dealing with three members of her family afflicted with brain disease and shaking off both family curses and the expectations that she should become a doctor and a concert pianist. With the same spirit, humor, and magic that characterize her beloved novels, Amy Tan presents a refreshing antidote to the world-weariness and uncertainties we face today, contemplating how things happen - in her own life and beyond - but always returning to the question of fate and its opposites: the choices, charms, influences, attitudes, and lucky accidents that shape us all.

    " This book really gave you an interesting veiw of Amy Tan's life. If you have read any of her books and then read this you really see a lot of similarities between the other books and this one. "

    " If you're a fan of Amy Tan's books, this is a very interesting and different take on her as it's an autobiography of sorts, though more a collection of her musings, but it's interesting to learn more about what it's like to be an author, etc. Quite good most of the time, though some bits went on a little too long for my taste. Overall, a good read. "
