John Steinbeck The Grapes of Wrath
This Pulitzer prize-winning novel is Steinbeck’s undisputed masterpiece. He watched from his California home as hundreds of thousands of migrants crawled from the dust bowl of the mid-west, lured by false promises of work. And he watched and tried to help as thousands died of starvation in a land of plenty. So topical today, the American Government’s failure to address a full national emergency, becomes in Steinbeck’s hands a wonderful chronicle of human capacity for endurance. His wonderful Joad family become part of our personal index of the unforgettable. “I’ve done my damndest to rip a reader’s nerves to rags. I don’t want him satisified’. Steinbeck’s concern to get the facts right is combined with his writer’s imaginative skill into a piece of fabulous art that you will never forget.
