ALL OVER TAN As a world-famous novelist, globetrotter and occasional rock musician, Amy Tan has assembled an impressive collection of mobile tech. In the past year, she has traveled between her homes on the east and west coasts of America and throughout China, where she researched her new, digitally-published story “Rules For Virgins,” a sensual tale about courtesans in Shanghai a century ago.
