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.

Covici signed Steinbeck to his original company, Covici-Friede, and convinced Steinbeck to follow him to Viking Press in 1938. The two maintained a close professional and friendly relationship throughout both of their lives.
