About This Item

Viking Press, 1939. 2nd Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Inscribed by John Steinbeck on the title page. A second printing before publication. Very good in a very good dust jacket. Book has slightly tanned spine and a small (less than an inch) tear in the spine cloth near the front panel. Jacket has reviews on the front flap and is from a later printing. Bottom corner of the front flap is clipped, where it would have said what printing it is. We will provide a certificate of authenticity. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.

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. -
