Today, nearly forty years after his death, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck remains one of America's greatest writers and cultural figures. We have begun publishing his many works for the first time as blackspine Penguin Classics featuring eye-catching, newly commissioned art. This season we continue with the seven spectacular and influential books East of Eden, Cannery Row, In Dubious Battle, The Long Valley, The Moon Is Down, The Pastures of Heaven, and Tortilla Flat. Penguin Classics is proud to present these seminal works to a new generation of readers—and to the many who revisit them again and again.

Library Journal

Not among the author's best-known works, this 1936 story of a young man drawn into labor disputes between migrants workers and apple orchard landowners foreshadows the events of Steinbeck's 1939 masterpiece, The Grapes of Wrath, and offers many of the same societal criticisms and questions.
