As you read the stories, you can almost sense Steinbeck's confidence growing, and it the reader can see the development of the characteristic Steinbeck "style".
In "The Snake" we meet a prototype of Doc from "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday", and "The Raid" reads like an early working of "In Dubious Battle".
Anyone interested in Steinbeck, not to mention anyone interested in American social history, will find much to interest them in these pages.
Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.
Lovers of Steinbecks novels will find a lot to tickle their fancy here - a prototype doc from "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday", an early working of "In Dubious Battle", and the genesis of the depiction of a working class California.
If you love "The Grapes of Wrath", "East of Eden", in fact any of the other great novels, give this book of short stories a go. You won't regret it
