    DescriptionThe six most highly-acclaimed short works of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Collected here for the first time in a deluxe paperback volume are six of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck's most widely read and beloved short novels--"Tortilla Flat," "The Red Pony," "Of Mice and Men," " The Moon Is Down," "Cannery Row" and "The Pearl." From Steinbeck's tale of commitment, loneliness, and hope in "Of Mice and Men," to his tough yet charming portrait of people on the margins of Monterey society in "Cannery Row," to "The Pearl"'s mythic examination of the fallacy of the American dream, Steinbeck created stories that were realistic, rugged, and imbued with energy and resilience. This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition features French flaps and deckle-edged paper.
