Novelist Anchee Min
discusses her latest book, Pearl of China.
It takes place at the end of the nineteenth century in China, and tells the story of nine-year-old Willow, the only child of a poor family, and her life-long friendship with Pearl, the eldest daughter of a zealous American missionary. It’s based on the life of Pearl S Buck, the Pulitzer- and Nobel Prize-winning writer and humanitarian activist.
