Little Happier: Novelist Amy Tan Didn’t Ask Her Unnamed Goddess for Good Reviews, But for Something Else.
Happier with Gretchen Rubin
Novelist Amy Tan recounts that as she was writing her second book, she prayed to unnamed goddess that she “be able to write the best book I could, and that no matter what happened to it, I would have no regrets.” Wisely, she didn’t pray for a particular outcome or some metric of success; she prayed that she would feel no regrets.Get in touch: @gretchenrubin; email@example.comGet in touch on Instagram: @GretchenRubinGet the podcast show notes by email every week here: http://gretchenrubin.com/#newsletterOrder a copy of Gretchen’s new book OUTER ORDER, INNER CALM here: http://outerorderinnercalmbook.comLeave a voicemail message on: 774-277-9336For information about advertisers and promo codes, go to happiercast.com/sponsors.Happier with Gretchen Rubin is part of ‘The Onward Project,’ a family of podcasts brought together by Gretchen Rubin—all about how to make your life better.

Hey there Peaches! In this week's episode, we discussed our book of the month: The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. Originally published in 1989, the novel focuses on four Chinese American immigrant families living in San Francisco. The four Chinese mothers started a club where they meet weekly to play mahjong and shared stories of what they left behind in China. United in loss and new hope for their daughters' futures, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. Through a series of sixteen vignettes, Amy Tan perfectly portrayed the cultural conflict and often-rocky relationships between mothers and their first generation Chinese American daughters. This week we attended our first MLB game at Truist Park between the Atlanta Braves and Arizona Diamonbacks (ATL won 5-4! GO BRAVES!) The park was at 50% capacity and we had an amazing time. Tune in to find out what new business venture Mel got cooking up and what new Pet did Tiff's dad bring home. We hope y'all enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed making it! Love you all so MUCHO GRANDE!
