Product description

The 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. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
