AMY TAN: UNINTENDED MEMOIR is an amazing walk down memory lane with a prolific author. She is the woman who paved the way for future Asian writers and artists to be themselves in all their magnificent culture glory.

Amy Tan is a shy woman by nature, yet we are able to witness many of her break-out moments of her past in this documentary. I never dreamed I would hear her describe how difficult it was to find her “voice” and still see her rocking out in a band on stage with Stephen King.

This memoir took down so many walls about Amy Tan’s life and her writing. She is an inspiring, gentle soul that is also a force to be reckoned with as she came to understand her life-long mother/daughter battles. There isn’t a woman who can’t relate. The origin of your birth does not matter. It is a universal connection, and Amy Tan is our leader.

I was thoroughly mesmerized by the author of THE JOY LUCK CLUB. Amy Tan released secrets and revelations in her usual quiet style. Her art work, past videos and excerpts from her many books created an insider’s look into the brilliance of this woman.

AMY TAN: UNINTENDED MEMOIR is available to stream on Netflix.
