Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, Steinbeck created a Camelot on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur’s castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging—men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude. As Steinbeck chronicles their deeds—their multiple lovers, their wonderful brawls, their Rabelaisian wine-drinking—he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table, which inspired him.

    " This series of tales describes the Mexican inhabitants of Tortilla Flat. I did not find it as engaging as either of his previous works. It is still well written, still entertaining, but read one of his more famous works first. "

    " I read this book when I was 13 and remember not liking or understanding it. Probably because I was 13. "

    " This was my 2nd Steinbeck book I read. I enjoyed his vivid discriptions of his characters; by the end of the book I felt as if I'd known these people all my life. "

    " Really, it's a collection of short stories about a band of poor men who do good deeds and drink lots of jug wine in Monterey. Total bromance. I enjoyed it. "
