Forty years after it was finished, the last work by Nobel Prize-winning novelist Pearl S. Buck has been discovered.

About the Author

Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973) was a bestselling and Nobel Prize-winning author. Her classic novel The Good Earth (1931) was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and William Dean Howells Medal. Born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, Buck was the daughter of missionaries and spent much of the first half of her life in China, where many of her books are set. In 1934, civil unrest in China forced Buck back to the United States. Throughout her life she worked in support of civil and women's rights, and established Welcome House, the first international, interracial adoption agency. In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont.

Reviews

REVIEW QUOTES: PRAISE FOR THE GOOD EARTH "[Buck] did for the working people of twentieth-century China something of what Dickens had done for London's nineteenth-century poor." -Hilary Spurling, author of Pearl Buck in China "One need never have lived in China or know anything about the Chinese to understand [The Good Earth] or respond to its appeal." -Boston Evening Transcript "One of the most important and revealing novels of our time." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "A comment upon the meaning and tragedy of life as it is lived in any age in any quarter of the globe." -The New York Times
