Wandering from China to America: An Autobiography
by Xiuwu R. Liu
This is not a success story; nor a paean to the resilience of the human spirit; nor a search for identity constrained by class, race, and gender or the other usual suspects; nor a tearjerker that engenders in the Western reader a sense of superiority or schadenfreude. Rather, it is a tale of the joys and hardships of simple living, of an enduring curiosity about the world, of marriage and divorce, of Chinese and American societies, of tofu and jalapenos, of character flaws and personality quirks, of humbug and folly. About the author: Xiuwu Liu spent his grade-school years in the country and had a number of jobs before college. His subsequent life can be summed up by a series of threes: three graduate schools, three university employers, three books, three wives, and three academic failures.
