East of Eden

ebook

'A fantasia of history and myth ... a strange and original work of art' The New York Times Book Review

Described by John Steinbeck as 'the story of my country and the story of me', East of Eden is an epic, engrossing family saga.

'There is only one book to a man' Steinbeck wrote of East of Eden. Set in the rich farmland of the Salinas Valley, California, this powerful, often brutal novel, follows the interwined destinies of two families - the Trasks and the Hamiltons - whose generations hopelessly re-enact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. Here Steinbeck created some of his most memorable characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of indentity; the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence.
