The Good Earth (Enriched Classics)

The Good Earth - Pearl S. Buck somehow Pearl S. Buck won the Nobel Prize although she isn't all more skillful a writer than the average schoolmarm working in China today. that is brilliance or the failure of the Nobel Committee, which anticipated its future direction in honoring world literature, which passed comment by on the global political picture by the award in 1938, and managed to get professors of lit tearing out their hair for the next hundred years to come as they struggled to articulate to the democratic masses why exactly this author won.

anyway, the world had turned against Japan by 1938, and Tintin was battling the Japanese, and soldiers were fighting in Zhejiang, and we are all still wondering how Pearl S. Buck won the Nobel Prize!!!
