Amy Tan loves jazz and classical music. “I have a Steinway, which was my life’s dream,” she says, sitting at her grand piano in the middle of her New York living room. When Tan listens to a piece of music, she imagines stories to go with it, so she always listens when she writes.

She says she wrote her new memoir to the tune of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 3 in D minor, a piece she used to hate. Today, the concerto reminds her of her past.

Our own Lynn Neary spent some time with Tan – but couldn’t convince her to play the piano on tape, alas. Check out her story here.

  • Jake: [drunk] and I have to say, you know, getting married is the bravest, most wonderful thing you can do. Because everyday you come home and you’re just, like, “What? It’s you! I love you! You’re my sexy roommate. We love each other.”
  • Amy: [also drunk] Wooo! He’s talking about me

Gamespot uploaded a longer look at the newly unveiled level from Sonic Forces, Space Port, which looks a whole bunch like Chemical Plant. This also shows off the Rental Hero mechanic, which Sonic Team also announced today.
