PEARL 赛珍珠 A story by R. Lee Salkind Meliment
She has been almost forgotten in the passage of time. She won the Pulitzer Prize, and later accepted the Nobel for Literature– but she has been largely ignored by the country of her birth, and her works have often been banned in the country she adopted as her home. Pearl S. Buck was one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century, and her novels achieved critical acclaim. But Pearl was much more than just a writer. She was the child of missionaries in war-torn China, the voice of a people who had little voice of their own, and a woman of clear-eyed vision who sought challenge at every turn. She found success in the midst of personal heartbreak, and throughout her life story– from the young girl without a care in pre-revolutionary China, to an elderly woman railing against the social blacklist of international adoption – Pearl S. Buck was a vehicle for change.
"Pearl" is a beautifully-crafted story by R. Lee Salkind Meliment on the early years of the legendary writer's life and career. A perfect book for everyone in the family to enjoy- both adult and young alike!
