Pearl Buck (1892-1973

Pearl Buck (1892-1973), American novelist, born in Hillsboro, W. Va. The daughter of American missionaries, she lived in China until 1933. Of her more than 85 books, many sympathetically portray China and its people. Her simple, direct style and concern for the fundamental values of human life were derived from her study of the Chinese novel. She was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1938. Among her works are The Good Earth (1931), a dramatic tale of China in the 1920s that received a Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1932 and has continued to be very popular, and Dragon Seed (1942). Her last works include The Kennedy Women (1970) and China As I See It (1970). [Funk and Wagnalls Encyclopedia]
