Publisher's Description

Youthful friends in turn-of-the-century China reunite years later in America, in this New York Times bestseller by the author of The Good Earth.
 
This deeply felt novel tells the story of William Lane and Clem Miller, Americans who meet in China as youths at the end of the nineteenth century. Separated by the Boxer Rebellion, they’re destined to travel wildly different courses in life. From a background of wealth and privilege, William becomes a power-hungry and controlling media magnate. By contrast, Clem, whose family survived on charity growing up, is engrossed by a project—which he works on ceaselessly, perhaps naively, together with his chemist wife—to eliminate world poverty. The two wind up in America and meet again, each successful in his own area, and as similar in their intensity as they are different in their values. God’s Men is a rich and layered portrayal of lives set alight by ambition.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

Author Bio

Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973) was a bestselling and Nobel Prize–winning author. Her classic novel The Good Earth (1931) was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and William Dean Howells Medal. 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. Throughout her life she worked in support of civil and women’s rights, and established Welcome House, the first international, interracial adoption agency. In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont. 

Editorial Reviews

"[Buck] did for the working people of twentieth-century China something of what Dickens had done for London’s nineteenth-century poor." —Hilary Spurling, author of Pearl Buck in China

"Pearl Buck’s most compelling novel and her most controversial." —Saturday Review
