John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962, Steinbeck produced some of the most passionate, descriptive, peculiarly American novels ever.  His proud socialism colored much of his work, yet he expressed ultimate respect for the Individual.

"A book is like a manóclever and dull, brave and cowardly, beautiful and ugly. For every flowering thought there will be a page like a wet and mangy mongrel, and for every looping flight a tap on the wing and a reminder that wax cannot hold the feathers firm too near the sun."

"We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome. One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say- and to feel- 'Yes, that's the way it is, or at least that's the way I feel it. You're not as alone as you thought.'"
