Unanimously selected by the Book-of-the-Month Club literary experts—a group who had been selecting titles since 1926—The Good Earth was the first of 15 books written by Pearl S. Buck to be included in the club. After being chosen as a Book-of-the Month, letters started flooding into the publisher and sales skyrocketed, making The Good Earth the best-selling book of both 1931 and 1932.
