Books & Company, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 1pm
Afternoon Book Group Open to the Community Thursday, January 15, 2015 1:00-2:00 p.m. Books & Company Ken will be leading the discussion on The Eternal Wonder by Pearl S Buck A recently discovered novel written by Pearl S. Buck at the end of her life in 1973, "The Eternal Wonder" tells the coming-of-age story of Randolph Colfax (Rann for short), an extraordinarily gifted young man whose search for meaning and purpose leads him to New York, England, Paris, on a mission patrolling the DMZ in Korea that will change his life forever--and, ultimately, to love. Rann falls for the beautiful and equally brilliant Stephanie Kung, who lives in Paris with her Chinese father and has not seen her American mother since she abandoned the family when Stephanie was six years old. Both Rann and Stephanie yearn for a sense of genuine identity. Rann feels plagued by his voracious intellectual curiosity and strives to integrate his life of the mind with his experience in the world. Stephanie struggles to reconcile the Chinese part of herself with her American and French selves. Separated for long periods of time, their final reunion leads to a conclusion that even Rann, in all his hard-earned wisdom, could never have imagined. Ferbuary 19~ Rosie Project--Graeme Simsion
