John Steinbeck (1902-1968) was born in Salinas, California. He worked as a laborer and a journalist, and in 1935, when he published Tortilla Flat, he achieved popular success and financial security. Steinbeck wrote more than twenty-five novels and won the Nobel Prize in 1962. Jay Parini teaches English at Middlebury College and is the author of five novels, including The Last Station. He lives in Vermont.

-- The San Francisco Examiner "The eager, sensuous pages in which he writes about what he found and whom he encountered frame a picture of our human nature in the twentieth century which will not soon be surpassed."
-- The Atlantic Monthy
