pearlbuckManuscript for a novel by Pearl S. Buck, discovered in a storage unit in Texas, will be released in October in paperback and e-book formats. Best known for her second novel The Good Earth, published in 1931, Pearl Buck is the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Renewed interest in her work soared when Oprah Winfrey chose The Good Earth as a book club selection in 2004. This recent manuscript The Eternal Wonder is being described by her publisher as “the coming-of-age story of Randolph Colfax, an extraordinarily gifted young man whose search for meaning and purpose leads him to New York, England, Paris and on a mission patrolling the DMZ in Korea that will change his life forever – and, ultimately, to love.” Read the entire NYT article here and check out the library catalog for other books by the acclaimed author.
