Read full description of the books:
Pearl S. Buck travels to Japan to observe the filming of the movie based on her children's book, The Big Wave, when she receives a phone call that her dying husband has passed away. This book tells with calm poignancy the people she meets in Asia, her experiences, and reflections she has during this time of grief and exploration.
The strongest parts of the book, for me, were Buck's observations and insights into other people. I couldn't agree with her agnosticism, although I might have during an earlier time in my life. She's opinionated, but in a detached, wise sort of way, and I enjoyed her thoughts on love as well as the way she views her own self and the kind words she writes about her husband.
The many threads of narrative, from the differences between the modern Japanese and traditional Japanese, the difficulties during the filming of The Big Wave, to Buck's own personal memories living in China and other family memories, visiting Japan, and her happy (but not perfect) marriage, play upon each other well. The style of writing is calm and associative, and her dry sense of humor is amusing. I kept wanting to read on and completed the book with satisfaction.

Born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, Buck was the daughter of missionaries and spent much of the first half of her life in China, where many of her books are set. In 1934, civil unrest in China forced Buck back to the United States.

In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont.
