When first we meet Susan a young American woman studying in Hong Kong we see her as eager and inexperienced a lover of Chinese culture who is uickly romanced by fellow student Cai so handsome and sure Through innocent intellectual evening chats and patience Cai courts Susan and proposes very uickly Susan entranced and bewitched by him agreesFrom there it unravelsuestionable relationships Porn addiction Extramarital issues Abandonment peep shows detachment Coldness Threats Unemployment FearHere s what really works about Susan Blumberg Kason s Good Chinese Wife Susan gets it She gets that we may be reading her deeply personal story of a trouble marriage with a critical eye She knows we may judge we may disagree we may shake our hands and wag our fingers Maybe we ll say you should have known Susan understands we will not accept all of her choices Why does she stay when it s obvious she should run run runBut this Susan our narrator is older wiser accepting She s gazing back at her tumultuous first marriage with a new understanding and she s not apologetic about her past In a matter of fact but warm tone Susan recounts her time with Cai in a way that isn t truly detached but makes it clear she s moved beyond their pain and differencesAt its core Good Chinese Wife is about a woman who loves a man one who doesn t respect or support her Though she is Jewish American and he is Chinese the fault lines in their marriage aren t entirely due to cultural differences as she once rationalizes Yes they hail from separate nations and have entirely different traditions different values But as a new wife Susan works hard to empathize and learn from her husband accepting his uirks if you could call a porn addiction a uirk and chooses to give him the benefit of the doubtCai can t say the same Good Chinese Wife is riveting As outsiders it may be easy to wonder Why why why Susan would choose to stay with a man who repeatedly and blatantly disrespects her both through his uestionable relationships with others male and female and his verbal abuse at home Cold silent and brooding Cai comes across as a dangerously unpleasant man one subject to wild mood swings and threatsBut I got it I got it For better or worse Susan fell in love with him this tempestuous mysterious person and tried to make a life with him but Cai proved to be someone on whom she could not depend As they welcomed a son I cringed at the stunts Cai would pull and the detached harmful way in which he interacted with his childFor all the sad angry moments this isn t a negative story and there were times Good Chinese Wife really sparkled Susan is incredibly endearing and I loved the electricity in her voice when she talks about her beloved Hong Kong Her love for her family is very clear and she s incredibly kind and treated very kindly by Cai s parents in Hidden River who love her and their grandchild as wellIs Good Chinese Wife about an interracial intercultural marriage Yes and no Though some of Susan and Cai s issues stem from cultural misunderstandings of course it s far deeper than that And this isn t a cautionary tale By the close we know Susan bears no malice toward Cai and having found happiness herself not a spoiler in the author bio she reflects on their time together in the 1990s very differently these daysAbsorbing calm and wise Good Chinese Wife was a memoir I devoured in just a few hours I felt Susan s all encompassing love for her family and often wanted to simultaneously hug and shake her Though readers may uestion her decisions sometimes I did too Susan bravely shares her story in the hope I think of inspiring others to stand up for themselves and their families It s a thought provoking memoir and one I recommend
