VIVA wrote, “The Foremost Good Fortune, chronicles Susan’s two and a half years living with her husband and two young sons in Beijing – and a resulting journey into ‘the haze of cancerland’ when she is diagnosed with breast cancer. As well as capturing the bewildering life of being an expat family in China, the book offers a candid look at morality, culture and belonging.
The Foremost Good Fortune has been receiving acclaim in the United States for its high literary caliber and fierce honesty. O, The Oprah Magazine named the memoir as one of their top 10 reads for February 2011, and the New York Times Magazine recently published an excerpt. “You hear about riveting prose, and this is it,” wrote The Washington Post. “A beautiful [story] about China and cancer and how to be an authentic, courageous human being.””
