5.0 out of 5 stars Essential re-reading, 27 Sept. 2009
This review is from: The Grapes of Wrath (Paperback)
Like other reviewers I re-read this recently, in my case following a visit to Monteray where Steinbeck is hugely celebrated. What a heart-breaking and heroic book, with so many levels. The Biblical parallels and reversals like in East of Eden are stunning. The stage version is currently touring in the UK and is about to reach my neck of the woods, the Hall for Cornwall, Truro - it'll be fascinating to see how you get an epic road movie of a novel on stage. Migrant workers here suddenly appear to me in a different light, although reading Rose Tremain's excellent The Road Home had already made me start to reconsider my attitudes last year. But if you haven't read The Grapes of Wrath, you must. If you have, read it again and/or get your kids to. Underestimated by the UK literary establishment in my view - a giant of world literature.
