Synopses & Reviews
Kinfolk is the story of a Chinese family. Dr. Liang moves to America in search of a better life, but his children long to return to China. Each responds to their new life in China differently, providing rich insight into the struggles between Eastern and Western culture, and the differences between generations.
Kinfolk is a richly human story, with humour and pathos as well as the larger emotions. Pearl Buck explores the conflict between traditional and progress in this novel of China.
