"Pearl of China"

This new book caught my eye at the library last week. It's a fictional account of Pearl S. Buck's life told from the perspective of a Chinese friend. The friend is fictional but the essential story about Pearl Buck is fairly accurate. It's also a sweeping overview of the changes that China experienced in the 20th century.

Look for "Pearl of China" by Anchee Min.
