Women’s Leaving Home Experiences in Mother-Daughter Narrative in Post-1990s Chinese American Fiction

  •  Tongtong Zhang    


This article aims to investigate the trope of “home” and the representation of women’s leaving home experiences in mother-daughter narrative in post-1990s Chinese American fiction. Amy Tan’s The Valley of Amazement (2013), Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You (2014), and Little Fires Everywhere (2017) are selected in the case study to illustrate the new characteristics of women’s leaving home experiences and the changing cultural connotations of “home” in Chinese American fiction in the new era.
