Ms. Buck tells us that East and West can meet on the ground of affectionate understanding and that human similarities can prevail over the gulf between cultures....She has something to say and she says it with lucid ease....If she has a mission she can also tell a story. She writes consistently and successfully to be read; she writes consistently; and she writes successfully.
