Tortilla flat
Steinbeck, John
Adult Fiction

Comments  Summary  Author Notes

Summary: Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, John Steinbeck created a #147;Camelot" on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur's castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging#151;men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude. nbsp; As Nobel Prize winner Steinbeck chronicles their deeds#151;their multiple lovers, their wonderful brawls, their Rabelaisian wine-drinking#151;he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table, which inspired him. This edition features an introduction by Thomas Fensch.
