About This Item
First published in 1938, this volume of stories collected with the encouragement of his longtime editor Pascal Covici serves as a wonderful introduction to the work of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck. Set in the beautiful Salinas Valley of California, where simple people farm the land and struggle to find a place for themselves in the world, these stories reflect Steinbeck’s characteristic interests: the tensions between town and country, laborers and owners, past and present. Included here are the O. Henry Prize-winning story The Murder”; The Chrysanthemums,” perhaps Steinbeck’s most challenging story, both personally and artistically; Flight,” The Snake,” The White Quail,” and the classic tales of The Red Pony.” With an introduction and notes by John H. Timmerman.
