Pearl Buck’s The Good Earth is a great book. I read it when I was working in Taiwan and Hong Kong in my twenties, and it transformed my understanding and appreciation of China’s history and culture. It’s a good read for us because, well, we live here, and we’re studying the era of the story. That’s all I’ll say for now.
