Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Now here is something special. This edition of Steinbeck's 1939 epic of the Joad family is a newly edited version based on his original manuscript, typescript, and proofs. Words omitted or misconstrued by typists have been restored to the text for the first time.

This volume combines fiction and nonfiction works and includes the text of the 1938 collection of short stories, The Long Valley, which contains The Red Pony. There is also The Log from the Sea of Cortez, which is Steinbeck's account of a marine biological expedition, and The Harvest Gypsies, his investigative report on migrant workers that inspired Grapes.

This corrected text edition of The Grapes of Wrath is essential for all serious American literature collections, both academic and public.

Meet the Author

One of the leading American novelists of the 20th century, John Steinbeck (1902-1968) grew up in the fertile Salinas Valley in California, an environment that served as a setting for some of his best-loved books. Several of his most powerful novels, including Cannery Row, Of Mice and Men, and The Grapes of Wrath, focus on the plight of California’s laboring class, while East of Eden is an ambitious family saga. Steinbeck received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1962.
