What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding

The first UK edition of the work. Lacking the original dustwrapper. Cannery Row is set in Monterey, California and tells the story of a group of friends during the Great Depression. The work deals with themes of nostalgia and camaraderie in the face of tough economic hardship, with a sequel, entitled Sweet Thursday published in 1954. The work gets its name from a road in Monterey lined with sardine canneries. Steinbeck is considered one of the all-time greatest American authors, best known for his works Of Mice and Men and The Grapes Of Wrath. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. A smart copy of an important piece of American literature.
