Red Azalea Reviews
"A straightforward biography would have served better than this flat, hagiographic narrative." - Kirkus Reviews
"Though the setting and revolutionary backdrop are inherently dramatic, Min's account of an epic friendship is curiously low-key, with some sections reading more like a treatment than a narrative." - Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review. Min's fresh and penetrating interpretation of Pearl S. Buck's extraordinary life delivers profound psychological, spiritual, and historical insights within an unforgettable cross-cultural story of a quest for veracity, compassion, and justice." - Booklist
"Min skillfully blends real historical figures... with fictional characters to authenticate the story's social and political context... [Pearl of China] pays worthy homage to Pearl Buck's legacy." - San Francisco Chronicle
"[T]old with a haunting quality only Anchee Min can deliver... this rewarding read passes far too quickly." - Bookreporter.com
