In Monterey, on the California Coast, Sweet Thursday is what they call the day after Lousy Wednesday, which is one of those days that's just naturally bad. Returning to the scene of Cannery Row, the weedy lots, junk heaps and flop houses of Monterey, Steinbeck once again brings to life the denizens of a netherworld of laughter and tears. The book is in many ways a statement about Steinbeck's greatest theme: the common bonds of humanity and love which make goodness and happiness possible.

Sweet Thursday is gentle and - compared to some Steinbeck novels - quite light. It is certainly not lightweight though. The dry wit, the standard of characterisation and the clever choice of words all make for an enjoyable few hours' reading.
