"The themes in Hong Kingston's memoir will appeal to readers from many backgrounds, for they are woven through with myth and longing....Each of the five sections of the book paints vibrant and amazingly original portraits of women--women in distress, women triumphant, women who sing, women who talk-story, women who bring shame to their clans, women who leap into wells. They are the author's family: her mother, aunts, grandmother, herself--and the women of legend she grows up hearing about who inspire and frustrate her at the same time because she can't live up to them.Kingston, Maxine Hong is the author of 'Woman Warrior Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts', published 1989 under ISBN 9780679721888 and ISBN 0679721886.
