Description:

‘I ain’t never been satisfied with that book, Cannery Row. I would of went about it different.’ Returning to the scene of Cannery Row, Steinbeck brilliantly re-creates its bawdy, high-spirited world of bums, drunks and hookers, telling the story of what happened to everyone after the war. There’s Fauna, the latest madam at the Bear Flag brothel; Doc, still there for everyone else but feeling strangely sad himself; and Suzy, the new hustler in town who might just be the girl to save him. John Steinbeck was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize for literature 'The outstanding quality of Steinbeck's writing... is his feel for the lives, thoughts and aspirations of ordinary people' SPECTATOR
