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, theyre 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 projectwhich he works on ceaselessly, perhaps naively, together with his chemist wifeto 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. Gods 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 authors estate.
