A Bridge for Passing

A non fiction book by

Pearl S. Buck's absorbing and candid chronicle of her experience making a movie in 1960s Japan, while surviving the loss of her beloved husband

Pearl S. Buck's children's story, The Big Wave, about two young friends whose lives are transformed when a volcano erupts and a tidal wave engulfs their village, was eventually optioned as a movie. A Bridge for Passing narrates the resulting adventure, the story of the people involved in the movie-making process (including Polish director Tad Danielewski), their many complications while shooting, and the experience of working in Japan at a time when memories of the war remained strong. As much as all this, the book is a poignant reflection on personal crisis, and relates Buck's grief over the death of her husband of twenty-five years, Richard Walsh, who was also her editor. A Bridge for Passing offers an intimate view of postwar Japan mixed with Buck's heartrending meditation on loss and love.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author's estate.
