In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. Combining despair, determination and optimism, the writing of John Steinbeck gave a powerful voice to the suffering poor of America during the Depression and beyond, and Penguin have made the whole range of his most well-loved novels including The Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men and his lesser known works available to millions of readers. These four tales consider the struggle for survival in 1940s America, against a backdrop of majestic beauty.
