About the book
The clash between an American woman’s ideals and her struggle to the perfect, traditional Chinese wife is at the center of a riveting new memoir, Good Chinese Wife: A Love Affair with China Gone Wrong.
When Susan Blumberg-Kason met Cai during grad school in Hong Kong, she thought she had found the man of her dreams. Long enchanted with Chinese culture, Blumberg-Kason believed her intercultural marriage would play out like an exotic fairy tale.
Instead, it quickly turned into a nightmare.
Good Chinese Wife examines the values of marriage and family in contemporary China and America, and highlights one women’s journey of reclaiming her identity for the sake of her son’s future.
