"A number of other winners were never regarded as quite first-rate in their own national literature — to consider only the United States: Pearl Buck, John Steinbeck, Sinclair Lewis — let alone as figures in the grander category of world literature, on which winning the Nobel Prize is supposed to set the seal." - fleg
------------------

I loved Pearl S. Buck's writing. I've read all her books. I read The Good Earth for the first time in the 4th grade. Read it again later when I was an adult. Her books about China were my favorites. The American books weren't quite as interesting to me.
