Annotation

A reissue of Steinbeck's high-spirited tribute to his native California.

Publisher Description

'Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream.' Meet the gamblers, whores, drunks, bums and artists of Cannery Row in Monterey, California, during the Great Depression. They want to throw a party for their friend Doc, so Mack and the boys set about, in their own inimitable way, recruiting everyone in the neighbourhood to the cause. But along the way they can't help but get involved in a little mischief and misadventure. It wouldn't be Cannery Row if it was otherwise, now would it?

Author Biography

John Steinbeck (1902-68) is remembered as one of the greatest and best-loved American writers of the twentieth century. During the 1930s, his works included The Red Pony, Pastures of Heaven, Tortilla Flat, In Dubious Battle, and Of Mice and Men. The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939, earned him a Pulitzer Prize. In 1962, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Review

Steinbeck is to be judged by the highest standards New York Herald Tribune There is no more impressive writer on either side of the Atlantic Time and Tide Uninhibited, bawdy, compassionate, inquisitive, deeply intelligent Daily Telegraph One of the most thoroughly enjoyable and delicious books you'll ever have the fortune to read Chicago Sun Times
