Of Mice and Men

Paperback

Author: Steinbeck, John
ISBN: 9780142000670 Publisher: Penguin Books

A controversial tale of friendship and tragedy during the Great Depression, in a deluxe centennial edition

Over seventy-five years since its first publication, SteinbeckÕs tale of commitment, loneliness, hope, and loss remains one of AmericaÕs most widely read and taught novels. An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. They hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

Of Mice and Men represents an experiment in form, which Steinbeck described as Òa kind of playable novel, written in a novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands.Ó A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films. This edition features an introduction by Susan Shillinglaw, one of todayÕs leading Steinbeck scholars.
