WE WERE DREAMERS An Immigrant Superhero Origin Story

by | Read by Simu Liu

Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Simu Liu is a natural narrator, conversational and appealing as he shares his engaging story of pursuing acting and finding eventual stardom as the headliner of a Marvel superhero movie. What makes this much more than a celebrity memoir is that Liu also tells his parents' stories of growing up in China during and after the Cultural Revolution. While Liu spent his first years being raised by his grandparents in Harbin, China, his parents, both engineers, worked toward building a new life in Canada. Liu is earnest as he relates his experiences as a second-generation immigrant, feeling the weight of his parents' expectations and navigating an increasingly rocky relationship with them. Liu's driven yet playful personality shines through as he tackles the highs and lows of chasing his dream. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
