The Opposite of Fate

A Book Of Musings

By Amy Tan

A New York Times Bestselling Author

Amy Tan was born into a family that believed in fate. 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, decorating her house with charms, learning to ski, and living with squirrels, to dealing with the members of her family afflicted with brain disease, surviving natural disasters, and shaking off family curses.
