New Year: a novel

Buck, Pearl S. Author

Image Not Available

This is a novel of hope, reconciliation and new beginnings. It is the story of an American father and his Amerasian born son living in Korea. Living at oppsite ends of It is not without some soul-searching and a great deal of understanding on the part of his American wife that they get together as a family. The father is an aspiring politician in Philadelphia. Put in shock and a moral dilemma by the sudden knowledge of his son conceived while a soldier stationed in Korea, the father weighs his political future against his responsibilities to himself and his wife. The situation is further complicated by his childless marriage. The New Year is very modern in its treatment of a politician's seemingly conflicting goals of public success and conscientious personal behavior. The story confronts the disparity of two cultures: east and west and two generations. It is a very timely book for all of those reasons, but the reward of reading this book is Pearl Buck's ability as a story teller.

Chris Winters is running for the governor's office, and his tidy personal life seems tailor-made for the election. He's even asked his wife Laura to downplay her profession as a marine biologist in favor of her identity as a former model. But a letter from Korea reveals that he has a son, born when Chris was a young man stationed there in the 1950s. In this concise novel, Pearl S. Buck considers the culture shock of young Kim, brought to an American boarding school and kept out of sight, as well as the conflicts of responsibilities and appearances. 255.
