Searching for a long-lost Pearl Buck manuscript? Try a storage locker

The shocking find by the buyer of the unit, a woman who asked the Buck estate to allow her to remain anonymous, led the late author’s family to take possession of the find after paying the woman a small finder’s fee. The completed novel, “The Eternal Wonder,” apparently finished just before her 1973 death from cancer, was unknown to her family or to her publishers.
