This Hard-Boiled Detective Is Also a “Tiger Mom”

From a Washington Post review by Sophia Nguyen headlined “This hard-boiled detective is also a bit of a ‘tiger mom'”:

Just over a decade ago, law professor Amy Chua — who, up until that point, had mostly written about legal matters and international relations — shook up the public with her memoir, “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.” It told a coming-of-age story, about Chua’s strict child-rearing philosophy and her clashes with her daughters. It was launched with a Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior.” The term “tiger mom” permanently entered our cultural lexicon.
