Streetwise George and his big, childlike friend Lennie are drifters, searching for work in the fields and valleys of California.

They have nothing except the clothes on their back, and a hope that one day they'll find a place of their own and live the American dream.

But dreams come at a price. Gentle giant Lennie doesn't know his own strength, and when they find work at a ranch he gets into trouble with the boss's daughter-in-law.

Trouble so bad that even his protector George may not be able to save him ...

John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck was born in Salinas, California, in 17 February 1902. After studying English at Stanford University, he held several jobs including working as a hod-carrier, apprentice painter, laboratory assistant, ranch hand, fruit-picker, construction worker at Madison Square Gardens, New York, and reporter for the New York American. In 1935 he became a full-time writer and was a special writer for the United States Army Air Force during World War II.

Among his most renowned works are Of Mice and Men, Cannery Row, East of Eden and The Grapes of Wrath, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1940.

In 1926 Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature as a mark of his outstanding contribution to literature, his unquestionable popularity and his versatility. In his speech accepting the Nobel Prize, Steinbeck gave his view of authorship: 'The ancient omission of the writer has not changed.

He is charged with exposing our may grevious faults and failures, with dredging up to the light our dark and dangerous dreams for the purpose of improvement. Furthermore, the writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate man's proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit for gallantry in defeat - for courage, compassion and love.' John Steinbeck died on 20th December 1968.

  • Short but hits the spot

    by on

    Having been recommended this book by my girlfriend, I was initially hesitant as it was quite short. It wasn't a great investment so I thought I'd tick another classic off my list. Of mice and men did not disappoint! John Steinbeck really hit the spot with this novella, in it's hundred odd pages, the author was able to draw me into the world of the great depression California and make me care for characters that don't seem to interesting on the surface. Worth the read.
