Reader's note

A wonderful collection of two books by John Steinbeck in the Penguin Modern Classics range. Of Mice and Men follows two migrant American labourers, George and Lennie and their close relationship during the Great Depression. As they move from place to place, searching for employment, they hold onto their dream of having a more stable life, but given Lennie’s strength inevitably leads to tragedy. Cannery Road revolves around a street in Monterey, California during the Great Depression, and the people who live there in poverty. Tortilla Flat is also set around the fishing port of Monterey, California. It concerns a group of jobless paisanos, countrymen with mixed descent, who form friendships in the days following the end of World War I. This beautiful collection of literary classics makes the perfect book gift for any avid reader.
