Pearl of China

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.
