I bought this one because it's small, light and handy in order to release it within my Lifetime Release Project "Around The World in 233 Books".

Combining despair, determination and optimism, the writing of John Steinbeck gave a powerful voice to the suffering poor of America during the Depression and beyond. Penguin have made the whole range of his most well-loved novels - including 'the Grapes of Wrath' and 'Of Mice and Men' - and his lesser-known works available to millions of readers. These four tales consider the struggle for survival in 1940s America, against a backdrop of majestic beauty.

This small compilation contains four short stories: 'The Chrysanthemums', 'Breakfast', 'The Vigilante' and 'The Murder'. I have to admit that I don't really know how I like it. I know too little about Steinbeck to judge his intentions; I suppose I'll have to collect some informations about Steinbecks life and work and political position in order to really build up my mind upon the stories.

This book will travel to Suomi/Finland to Mymlan.

I hope it'll help me complete another country within my Lifetime Release Project "Around The World in 233 Books"!

Have a nice journey!
