Treasure of the Rubbermaids 6 Made in China The on going discoveries of priceless books and comics found in a stack of Rubbermaid containers previously stored and forgotten at my parent s house and untouched for almost 20 years Thanks to my father dumping them back on me I now spend my spare time unearthing lost treasures from their plastic depthsI bitch about having to mow my lawn but when I m done I usually sit on my deck and have a few ice cold beers Then I take a hot shower and get in my car to go to the grocery store where I buy a cart full of food without giving it a second thought Chinese farmer Wang Lung I wanted to type Wang Chung there Damn you 80s spends all day doing back breaking labor in his own fields and there s still barely enough food to keep from starving His big reward is a cup of hot water in the morning with maybe a few tea leaves in it on special occasions and he sponges himself off with hot water every couple of months whether he needs it or not So maybe I shouldn t complain about walking around behind a power mower for an hour or two a week during the summerThe book begins on Wang Lung s wedding day His bride O Lan is a slave in the great house of his town and they ve never met He splurges by taking a bath buying her a couple of peaches and getting a little pork and meat for their wedding feast which O Lan prepares For a honeymoon they go work in the fields together This whole section made me laugh thinking about the women on those reality wedding shows like BridezillasWang Lung and O Lan make a good couple They re both hard working and she soon bears him sons which is kind of important to the Chinese And she returns to the fields right after giving birth with no assistance O Lan is a dream client for an HMO Together their family will go through bad times including droughts and famine but O Lan s steady nature and Wang Lung s farming skills eventually bring them prosperityThe one thing that sets Wang Lung apart from other farmers is his constant desire to acuire new land Part of this is pride but Wang Lung realizes that owning good farm land is the key to providing the necessary cushion to keep from starving during bad years Plus he genuinely loves working his crops and bringing them to harvest His fierce love of the land is the one constant in his life but he obviously never went through a real estate crash Diversify Wang Lung DiversifyThis book works on a lot of levels As a depiction of a culture that little was known about when it was published it s fantastic I liked how Buck never comments or judges on things that are kind of horrifying like selling girls for slaves or binding their feet but treats them as just the way things are to all the characters She just let the facts speak for themselves It s also works as a family drama with trials and tribulations worthy of a soap opera You could also read it as a plain old rags to riches success story Despite being set in a time and place so alien to me the characters still seem very real and relatable despite the cultural differences Wang Lung doesn t seem that different from any modern American farmer I ve known I think it must be universal that farmers everywhere like to gather and shoot the shit whether it s at a Chinese tea house or a diner in KansasAnd when a successful Wang Lung experiences a mid life crisis and falls for a younger woman you realize that it s no different from any modern guy divorcing the wife who stood by him for years It s just that the sports car hasn t been invented yet so Wang Lung can t go buy oneThis is one of those classics that has an easily readable style and a compelling story that still seems fresh even though it was published over 70 years ago
