About This Item

New York: Viking, 1939. First Edition, First Issue. Very good plus to near fine copy in a bright dust jacket with the barest hint of edge wear and a few minor mends by an expert paper conservationist. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. An American literary landmark and the basis of the acclaimed film starring Henry Fonda directed by John Ford.

Synopsis

John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath stands as a pivotal piece of American literature. The story follows the Joad family (and thousands of others) as they are driven from the Oklahoma farm where they are sharecroppers during the Great Depression. The drought, economic hardship, and changes in financial and agricultural industries send them searching for dignity and honest work in the bountiful state of California. The novel earned Steinbeck the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1940, and inspired the classic film of the same name the same year. The film starred Henry Fonda as Tom Joad, and Steinbeck's words and ideas shine through that medium. In 1962, Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for the body of his work, and The Grapes of Wrath stands as his most recognized and esteemed book. -
