Product Description

Nobel winner Pearl S. Buck?s classic debut novel, about one Chinese woman?s coming of age as she?s torn between Eastern and Western cultures.

Kwei-lan is a traditional Chinese girl?taught by her mother to submit in all things, ?as a flower submits to sun and rain alike.? Her marriage was arranged before she was born. As she approaches her wedding day, she?s surprised by one aspect of her anticipated life: Her husband-to-be has been educated abroad and follows many Western ideas that Kwei-lan was raised to reject. When circumstances push the couple out of the family home, Kwei-lan finds her assumptions about tradition and modernity tested even further.
 
East Wind: West Wind is a sensitive, early exploration of the cross-cultural themes that went on to become a hallmark of Buck?s acclaimed novels.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author?s estate.
