    A Journey into Steinbeck's California af Susan Shillinglaw (Waldstein)
    Waldstein: Fascinating coffee table book, lavishly illustrated with photos and maps, well-written too. Sort of Steinbeck's "Californian" biography, though it also covers his living in New York and travels to Mexico. Plenty of interesting real-life background of "East of Eden" and many of his other works. Compelling insight into Steinbeck's personality.… (mere)

I read this when I was young, about 1970; four stars. Re-reading in old age: five stars easy. This fellow could really write, and he is a jewel in the crown of American literature.
Therefore this suggestion: leave this on your t0-read shelf until you are well-seasoned. (But Cannery Row is his best.) ( )

"It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world."

"I believe there are monsters born in the world to human parents"

Those that choose to wrestle with the examined life, must battle, and ultimately slay the dragons of guilt, fear, shame, failure, and the most terrifying question: why? A masterwork in character studies and story, East of Eden never stumbles for a moment. Rather, there is a well-lighted pathway from the first word to the last. A crystalline vision that must have been deeply satisfying to triumphantly put on paper. Most excellent...

Seems like more than four or five stories in one book to me. I was disappointed with the ending ( )
  Jeff_Simms | Jun 9, 2021 |
I wonder what it's like for an author to sit down at their desk and think This is it, this book I'm about to write is going to be The One that puts me into the pantheon. Whatever Steinbeck was thinking at his typewriter, he turned out a masterpiece, one of those books that makes you wonder why anyone else even bothers trying to write a Great American Novel since that slot was just taken. The nickel summary is that it's the story of the relationships between the members of several generations of a family that moves from the Northeast to California to start a new life, but its scope includes life, death, love, brotherhood, fate, freedom, choice, sin, success, and all of the important issues that make us turn to Big Famous Novels in the first place. Steinbeck has this way of writing dialogue that should sound pretentious but instead strikes the perfect note, and the characters he puts in this book are so full of life it's almost unbelievable.

Pascal Covici

Dear Pat,

You came upon me carving some kind of little figure out of wood and you said, "Why don't you make something for me?" I asked you what you wanted, and you said, "A box." "What for?" "To put things in." "What things?" "Whatever you have," you said. Well, here's your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts--the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation.

And on top of these are all the graditude and love I have for you. And still the box is not full.

JOHN

You must not forget that a monster is only a variation, and that to a monster the norm is monstrous.
I don't very much believe in blood. I think when a man finds good or bad in his children he is seeing only what he planted in them after they cleared the womb. - Samuel Hamilton
And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual.
