13 Volume Complete John Steinbeck Collection
John Steinbeck (1902 – 1968) was born in Salinas, California, his native region of Monterey Bay was later the setting for most of his fiction. Steinbeck is widely known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Grapes of Wrath (1939) and East of Eden (1952) and the novella Of Mice and Men (1937). No writer is more quintessentially American than John Steinbeck. Profoundly committed to social progress, he used his writing to raise issues of labour exploitation and the plight of the common man, penning some of the greatest American novels of the twentieth century and winning such prestigious awards as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He received the Nobel Prize in 1962, "for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humour and keen social perception." Today, more than forty years after his death, he remains one of America's greatest writers and cultural figures.
