Drawing characters based on his memories of real inhabitants of Monterey, Steinbeck interweaves the stories of Doc, Henri, Mack, and his boys, in a world where only the fittest survive, in a novel that focuses on the acceptance of life as it is--a story at once humorous and poignant.Steinbeck returns to the same characters in Sweet Thursday, another book I enjoyed very much. Steinbeck had a wicked sense of humor, he could be laugh out loud funny while making his point.
