A Nobel Prize-winning Author
Many of Pearl Buck's award-winning novels dealt largely with the peasants, the plain people of China, whose lives - though sturdy and dramatic - were rarely complex, whose thoughts and words were simple and direct. In Pavilion of Women, the story is of a great family of the landed gentry, well-to-do, cultivated, aware and in the midst of the variety of human experience.

Madame Wu was to retire from married life and had planned to select a concubine for her husband. When the revered House of Wu is upturned by her decision, Madame Wu elegantly manages the situation and is granted private time she never had before. Yet, with all this new freedom, and the arrival of her son's English teacher, how will Madame Wu change?
"Pavilion of Women is Miss Buck at her best, the dedicated storyteller. Beneath the deceptive simplicity of the narrative flows the clear, swift tide of human life--the small commonplaces of daily living, the clashes of personality, the episodes mean and magnificent."
