Pearl S. Buck's epic
Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of a China that was
-- now in a Contemporary Classics
edition.


Though more than sixty years have passed
since this remarkable novel won the Pulitzer
Prize, it has retained its popularity and become
one of the great modern classics. "I can only
write what I know, and I know nothing but China,
having always lived there," wrote Pearl Buck. In
The Good Earth she presents a graphic
view of a China when the last emperor reigned
and the vast political and social upheavals of
the twentieth century were but distant rumblings
for the ordinary people. This moving, classic
story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his
selfless wife O-lan is must reading for those
who would fully appreciate the sweeping changes
that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese
people during this century.

Nobel Prize winner Pearl S. Buck traces the
whole cycle of life: its terrors, its passions,
its ambitions and rewards. Her brilliant novel
-- beloved by millions of readers -- is a
universal tale of the destiny of man.

About the Author:

Pearl S. Buck was born on June 26, 1892, in Hillsboro, West Virginia.Pearl began to publish stories and essays in the 1920s, in magazines such as The Nation, The Chinese Recorder, Asia, and The Atlantic Monthly. Her first novel, East Wind, West Wind, was published by the John Day Company in 1930. John Day's publisher, Richard Walsh, would eventually become Pearl's second husband, in 1935, after both received divorces.In 1931, John Day published Pearl's second novel, The Good Earth. This became the bestselling book of both 1931 and 1932, won the Pulitzer Prize and the Howells Medal in 1935, and would be adapted as a major MGM film in 1937. In 1938, less than a decade after her first book had appeared, Pearl won the Nobel Prize in literature, the first American woman to do so. By the time of her death in 1973, Pearl had published more than seventy books: novels, collections of stories, biography and autobiography, poetry, drama, children's literature, and translations from the Chinese. She is buried at Green Hills Farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
