1. Pearl S. Buck

Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973)

Pearl S. Buck also known as Sai Zhen Zhu, was a prolific American sinologist and Pulitzer Prize-winning American writer. In 1938, she became the first American woman to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, "for her rich and truly epic descriptions of peasant life in China and for her biographical masterpieces." With no irony, she has been described in China as a Chinese writer. Before 1934, Pearl Buck once held the nationality of the Republic of China.

* Command the Morning (J. Day, New York: 1959). Borderline SF: Interpretation of the complicated motives behind a team building the atomic bomb. Not Radium-Age SF.
