The Asian Book Group

The Asian Book Group

The Asian Book Group is an online book group that was formed in January 2010 based on our common interest in Asian literature, by Mee of Bookie MeeDavid of Absorbed in Words, Michelle of su[shu], and Claire of kiss of cloud. Every quarter one of us will pick a book for the group in turn. So the discussions would most probably be in late March, June, September, and December.

Coincidentally, four of us are originated from South East Asia, so we might be leaning more towards that region or East Asia. Recommendations and book chat are always welcome.

Winner of Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1932, The Good Earth tells a story about a poor farmer in China Wang-Lung and his simple down-to-earth wife O-Lan.

Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973) is American writer who spent the majority of her life in China. In 1938, she became the first American woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, “for her rich and truly epic descriptions of peasant life in China and for her biographical masterpieces.”
