Book Review: 

Ana Huang's If We Were Perfect was published in 2017 and I have been reading it since then. It is a collection of essays written over the course of her career. She writes about topics ranging from her childhood in China to her experiences working at Google. The book is divided into five sections: 

“The Art of Being Human”, “The Art of Living”, “Artistic Practice”, “A Life Worth Living”, and “Living in the World”. Each section contains several essays that explore different aspects of her life and work.

I am going to focus on the first two sections, “The Art Of Being Human” and “The Art Of Living”. These two sections discuss how she grew up in China and how she came to America. Her childhood in China was not always happy; she was born in Beijing in 1978, just before the Cultural Revolution began. 

As a child, she had to endure many hardships including being sent to live in rural villages where she was forced to do hard labor. In addition, her parents were constantly fighting and arguing. When she was 16 years old, they divorced and she moved back to her mother’s home in Shanghai. She describes her time in Shanghai as difficult and lonely. 

She felt isolated from her friends and family and struggled to make sense of what was happening around her. She eventually left school and worked at a factory making shoes. After a few months, she quit her job and decided to move to San Francisco.

In the second section, “The ArtOf Living”, she discusses her early days in California. She talks about her experience moving to the United States and how she got her first job. She explains that she did not know anyone in the U.S., so she had to learn English on her own. 

She also mentions that she had no money and had to rely on food stamps to survive. She was able to find a job at a grocery store after a year of struggling. She says that she learned to adapt to American culture and became comfortable in her new environment. 

She also talks about how she met her husband who would become her partner in life. He encouraged her to pursue her dreams and helped her get a job at Google. She says that he taught her to believe in herself and gave her confidence.

She ends the book by talking about her current life in New York City. She says that she feels lucky to be surrounded by people who love and care for her. She also says that she enjoys traveling and exploring new places. 

She loves spending time with her husband and their dog. She says that she tries to live each day as if it were her last. She believes that we should enjoy our lives while we still have them.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. I think that everyone could benefit from reading some of these essays. I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about Chinese history and culture.
