East Of Eden

By Steinbeck, John




East of Eden is a novel by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck, published in September 1952. Often described as Steinbeck's most ambitious novel, East of Eden brings to life the intricate details of two families, the Trasks and the Hamiltons, and their interwoven stories. The novel was originally addressed to Steinbeck's young sons, Thom and John (then 6½ and 4½ respectively). Steinbeck wanted to describe the Salinas Valley for them in detail: the sights, sounds, smells, and colors.

Publisher's green cloth lettered in dark green to front board and stamped in red and black to spine; in the original pictorial dust jacket. About very good, variously soiled and with some wear and toning to extremities, text block edges toned and with faint scattered stains, small dampstain to the gutter at title page, professional repairs to backstrip; dust jacket about very good, price-clipped and with some wear and large chips to extremities, significant paper repairs and reinforcements, most noticeably to the front fold, bottom edge of front panel, and spine ends. Overall, a presentable copy, inscribed by the author in the year following the book's publication. East of Eden features the intertwining stories of the Hamilton and Trask families. The former is based on Steinbeck's own genealogical lineage, while the latter is a representation of the Biblical Adam and his descendants.

During the writing process, Steinbeck chronicled the development of this novel with letters to his friend and former publisher Pascal Covici, the contents of which were published a year after Steinbeck's death as Journal of a Novel: The East of Eden Letters. A lengthy yet popular tale originally intended by the author to teach his sons about the Salinas Valley in California, East of Eden has been adapted into a film, a musical, and a television miniseries..

Steinbeck, John

New York: The Viking Press, 1952. First edition. Fine/Near Fine. A Fine copy of the book in a just about Fine dust jacket with some small nicks to the extremities. Bright, clean, unread and in exceptional condition for a book that is usually toned and well-read. Steinbeck's classic tale of the Trask and Hamilton families set in the Salinas Valley. The Nobel Prize winning writer considered this his greatest work and, in fact, a young Steinbeck actually makes a small appearance in the novel as a character. East of Eden was a bestseller and became extremely popular upon its release. Steinbeck wrote a friend: "I am getting flocks of letters [ . . .] People write as though it were their book." The popularity of the book would undergo a resurgence in 2003, when it was an Oprah's Book Club pick. More famously, the book has been adapted into a 1955 film, directed by Elia Kazan and featuring James Dean in one of his few starring roles. The movie appears on AFI's list of the Top 400 American Films. "But no one can doubt its merits as the work of a great storyteller. It compels and holds the reader's fascinated attention from the first chapter to the last" (Contemporary review in the Washington Post). Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
