Reviews

"An energized and engrossing portrayal of Pearl Buck. . . . Intensely sympathetic."

--Jonathan Spence, The New York Review of Books
"Penetrating. . . . Ms. Spurling writes well, and with real feeling. . . . The resulting portrait is a complicated one, but it has an absorbing glow. . . . It's a good story, easily as curious as any Buck herself put to paper."

--Dwight Garner, The New York Times
"Pearl Buck in China is one of those exceedingly rare biographies where the reader senses the most powerful connection between author and subject, enabling remarkably sensitive understanding and insight."

-- San Francisco Chronicle
"Ms. Spurling is an exquisite writer, and Pearl Buck in China is beautifully paced."

--The Wall Street Journal
