Pearl Buck’s divorce


Pearl Buck, a prolific writer, found herself unable to write in Reno while she awaited her divorce that would enable her to marry her publisher in 1935. To fill the time, she engaged Madame Kolak, a Reno dietitian, to help her lose weight. She recounts this amusing process, which backfired, in an excerpt from her memoir, My Several Worlds.
