FORMAT Hardcover CONDITION Brand New Publisher Description Pearl Bucks 1931 Pulitzer Prize-winning classic about the rise and fall of Chinese villagers before World War I comes to life in this evocative graphic novel by New York Times bestselling author Nick Bertozzi.In The Good Earth, Pearl S. Buck paints an indelible portrait of China in the 1920s, when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings. This moving story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his selfless wife O-Lan is must reading to fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during the last century.

Buck was born on June 26, 1892, in Hillsboro, West Virginia. 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. In 1931, John Day published Pearls 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. 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, childrens literature, and translations from the Chinese. She is buried at Green Hills Farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Review "Bertozzi beautifully distills Bucks text into poignant snippets... perfectly capturing the storys timeless subject matter while also underscoring the antiquity of the depicted world. Even within this foreign worldview, Buck and Bertozzi convey rich moral complexity and universal concerns. A finely rendered showcase for a classic tale."-Kirkus Reviews Details ISBN1501132768 Publisher Simon & Schuster Year 2017 ISBN-10 1501132768 ISBN-13 9781501132766 Format Hardcover Imprint Simon & Schuster Place of Publication New York Country of Publication United States Pages 144 Publication Date 2017-08-01 Illustrations 4-c graphic novel thru-out; Author Pearl S.
