The China Mystique: Pearl S. Buck, Anna May Wong, Mayling Soong, and the Transformation of American Orientalism by Karen J. Leong [in AsianWeek]

China MystiqueLeong examines the lives of this trio – author of The Good Earth, the APA actress of all time, and the Wellesley-educated wife of Chiang Kai-shek – as the most prominent women associated with 1930s and ‘40s China. It’s more on the academic side, but lots of fascinating details to keep you reading.
