I previously read a biography of Pearl Buck, and have followed that with Pearl's most famous book, The Good Earth. It was a wonderful book that captured my imagination immediately, and keep me interested throughout. The Good Earth is based on Pearl's knowledge of China, where she grew up. (Her father was a missionary there.) This book follows Wang Lang, and how his life played out in China.
part of it takes place in iowa city, and the protagonist is a PhD student with an unfinished dissertation looming over everything he does. for these reasons alone i found the book engaging. it's one of the few irving texts that makes the underlying sexism tolerable.
