The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

The Good Earth

357 pages; Washington Square Press (Simon & Schuster)

Reading Pearl Buck's writing feels like reading poetry to me. I just love the quiet rhythm of the words. They evoke the simple beauty of the characters and the harsh mystery of China's ancient culture. —Oprah
