it was amazing
Read in May, 2012

wow. This writing is luminous. I felt the same heartstrings, the complexity of family dynamics and character development. Then I worried. "How the hell is Pearl going to pull this together for an ending. Surely it will be a let down."

Pearl had talent galore. And quite the attention to detail to not disappoint all of us whom have loved THE GOOD EARTH. She did not write her way into a corner or take the easy road out. Another, WOW, powerful ending...and in her style...right through to the last word. Loved it.

Now onto more mundane. ha. Not really, but ORANGE: The New Black is completely 180 degrees away from this. I think.
