    Jocelyn, you’ve done such a good job helping to set this up. I’m looking forward to hearing what other early readers think of Susan’s excellent memoir.

    I’m really excited to read Susan’s book. I’ve never heard of a “blog tour” before–what a great idea! I love many of the blogs on the tour. Can’t wait to read more.

    Next time a Chinese guy especially from Singapore complains about white me taking Singaporean women ask him if he will date and marry a Filipina or Veitnamese, especially if he is educated…I did and they brilliantly got around the question or whether he will take the courage to date and marry a white woman….

    You wont have much sympathy for Asian men (particularly Singaporean men) complaining about Asian women dating and marrying white men after you read this piece…

    Hi Susan,

    If you are reading this comment, I just want you to know that I just bought your book (A Good Chinese Wife: A Love Affair With China Gone Wrong) and I am half way through. I just want to say that your book is great, but I have not yet finished reading it. My eyes are just glued to your book. You had me laughing and cheering for you when you were able to win the love of your life (Cai) and how you both romanced each other culminating into a beautiful marriage. Then I wept for you when he became so controlling and domineering, when he ignored you for days, when he left you to be with his friends and the bad Professor Yoshimoto, when he would not allow you to take a brief visit at the foreign book store, when he called you “dirty” and when he transmitted trichomoniasis to you. Damn it, Susan! How could you allow yourself to be abused like this?

    I am certain that I will have more comments after I finish reading it in the next day or two.
