    Steinbeck

    What a joy to discover Steinbeck's short novels in one anthology. Like finding an old friend. My son has been reading Steinbeck, and I recalled how much I used to love his writing...after rereading some of his best work...I'm pleased to know that I still do...love his work...that is.
