  • When Richard Nixon decided to make his historic visit to China in 1972, the aged Pearl Buck sought to go along, but Zhou Enlai himself, writes Hilary Spurling, refused her a visa. She was still controversial. Beginning in the 1980s, however, the Chinese began to embrace Pearl Buck and to encourage Pearl Buck tourism by renovating houses she had lived in as a child and producing Chinese TV specials about her and her writings. A documentary praised her as "an American writer who told the Chinese stories in a Chinese way in English.
