"I've done my damndest to rip a reader's nerves to rags. I don't want him satisfied." John Steinbeck's description of his goal in writing The Grapes of Wrath doesn't seem inviting, but this stark Depression novel has continued to attract new readers ever since it was first published in 1939. Susan Shillinglaw, regarded by many as the leading authority on the novel and its author, here honors the 75th anniversary of this National Book Award-winning classic in the best possible way: by exploring its meaning and its abiding hold on readers everywhere.
