Steinbeck’s tough yet charming portrait of people on the margins of society, dependent on one another for both physical and emotional survival. Published in 1945, Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as it is: both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. Drawing on his memories of the real inhabitants of Monterey, California, Steinbeck interweaves the stories of Doc, Henri, Mack and his boys, and the other characters in this world where only the fittest survive, to create a novel that is at once one of his most humorous and most poignant works.

    " This was one of my favorite books, Steinbeck was one of the best ever, and this was a simple story about his trip across America with his dog. I would recommend it to anyone. "

    " I generally dislike Steinbeck's novels, but this book was so different than his other works. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed reading it. "

    " I was really disappointed to learn that much of this book was fabricated. It's a shame that writers feel the need to deceive us. Even so, it's a lovely read about America. "

    " This book was very entertaining overall, but it became very somber at the end as Steinbeck travels through the South. Excellent--a great read. "
