Editorial Reviews for this title:
East Wind: West Wind is told from the eyes of a traditional Chinese girl, Kwei-lan, married to a Chinese medical doctor, educated abroad. The story follows Kwei-lan as she begins to accept different points of view from the western world, and re-discovers her sense of self through this coming-of-age narrative.
In her acceptance speech upon receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature, Pearl Buck said. "The mind of my own country and of China, my foster country, are alike in many ways, but above all, in our common love of freedom." 'East Wind: West Wind' embodies this love of, and struggle for freedom.
