About the Author

Pearl Comfort Sydenstricker was born on June 26, 1892, in Hillsboro, West Virginia. Her parents were Southern Presbyterian
missionaries, most often stationed in China, and from childhood, Pearl
spoke both English and Chinese. She returned to China shortly after
graduation from Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg, Virginia,
in 1914, and the following year, she met a young agricultural economist
named John Lossing Buck. They married in 1917, and immediately moved to Nanhsuchou in rural Anhwei province. In this impoverished community,
Pearl Buck gathered the material that she would later use in The Good Earth and other stories of China.Pearl began to publish stories and essays in the 1920s, in magazines such as The Nation, The Chinese Recorder, Asia, and The Atlantic Monthly. Her first novel, East Wind, West Wind,
was published by the John Day Company in 1930. John Day's publisher,
Richard Walsh, would eventually become Pearl's second husband, in 1935,
after both received divorces.
In 1931, John Day published Pearl's second novel, The Good Earth.
This became the bestselling book of both 1931 and 1932, won the
Pulitzer Prize and the Howells Medal in 1935, and would be adapted as a
major MGM film in 1937. Other novels and books of nonfiction quickly
followed. In 1938, less than a decade after her first book had appeared,
Pearl won the Nobel Prize in literature, the first American woman to do
so. By the time of her death in 1973, Pearl had published more than
seventy books: novels, collections of stories, biography and autobiography, poetry, drama, children's literature, and translations
from the Chinese. She is buried at Green Hills Farm in Bucks County,
Pennsylvania.

Prior to The Good Earth, Westerners had reduced Asian people to a cluster of simplifled stereotypes, most of them insulting: the Chinese were dishonest, cruel, inscrutable; they were addicted to opium and delighted in torture; their society was backward and decadent.
