A novel concerning the plight of the "Okies" - the refugee farmers and sharecroppers fleeing the dustbowl of Oklahoma. Attracted by the golden promise of California, they meet only with abject hostility, shame and destitution.Biografía del autor:
John Steinbeck (1902 1968) remains one of the quintessential writers of American literature. Born in Salinas, California, Steinbeck attended Stanford University before working at a series of mostly blue-collar jobs and embarking on his literary career. Profoundly committed to social progress, he used his writing to raise issues of labor exploitation and the plight of the common man, penning some of the greatest American novels of the twentieth century and winning such prestigious awards as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He received the Nobel Prize in 1962, for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humor and keen social perception. Steinbeck wrote over twenty-five novels during his lifetime.
