"Classic, and educating." Purchased on Mighty Ape

Man, I didnt realise this stuff happened, but after reading The Grapes, i see where a lot of things we have today started. Organised labour, unions, and the hell of unemployment. It started off like a slow moving novel usually does, but before long it was another I couldnt put down.

Description

John Steinbeck's powerful evocation of the suffering and hardship caused by the Great Depression, and a panoramic vision of the struggle for the American Dream, The Grapes of Wrath includes a critical introduction by Robert DeMott in Penguin Modern Classics.'I've done my damndest to rip a reader's nerves to rags, I don't want him satisfied.' Shocking and controversial when it was first published in 1939, Steinbeck's Pulitzer prize-winning epic The Grapes of Wrath remains his undisputed masterpiece. Set against the background of Dust Bowl Oklahoma and Californian migrant life, it tells of Tom Joad and his family, who, like thousands of others, are forced to travel west in search of the promised land. Their story is one of false hopes, thwarted desires and broken dreams, yet out of their suffering Steinbeck created a drama that is intensely human, yet majestic in its scale and moral vision. Adapted into a celebrated film directed by John Ford, and starring Henry Fonda, The Grapes of Wrath is an eloquent tribute to the endurance and dignity of the human spirit.If you liked The Grapes of Wrath, you might enjoy East of Eden, also available in Penguin Classics.'A novelist who is also a true poet' Sunday Times
