A Spider in the Wind: My World, My Time, My Life, My Thoughts by Albert Liang-Chung Chu

Growing up in the colonized Vietnam, this is an account of how, armed with a good family education and blessed with a good measure of luck, I managed to crawl my way out of the situation and eventually landed on the American soil, built a career and a family. My experience may serve as useful guide or at least a cautionary tale to youngsters who are looking down their life's path with wonderment.

About the Author

Born in Guangzhou, China, I left for Vietnam at age 3 ahead of the Japanese invasion. I grew up in Saigon and received a mixture of Chinese and French education there. After graduating from junior high, I worked at a local Chinese newspaper as an English and French translator for two years before I went to Taiwan to attend the National Taiwan University, majoring in English literature. Upon graduation, I went to Hong Kong and worked for two years at an English language magazine, an English newspaper and an advertising agency before I came to the United States to pursue a master's degree in journalism at Northwestern University. Since graduation, I worked as writer and editor at several trade publications in the computer, aluminum and telecommunications industries for 12 years before joining AT&T. I worked at various capacities at AT&T, including three years as deputy country manager in Beijing, for a total of 18 years before I retired from the company.
