From the Publisher:
Today, nearly forty years after his death, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck remains one of AmericaÂ's greatest writers and cultural figures. Over the next year, his many works published as black-spine Penguin Classics for the first time and will feature eye-catching, newly commissioned art.

Penguin Classics is proud to present these seminal works to a new generation of readersÂ?and to the many who revisit them again and again.

Annotation:
Steinbeck tells the classic story of three days in the lives of two migrant workers, Lennie Small and George Milton. Lennie, a simple-minded giant who doesn't know his own strength, wants only to settle down with his friend on a small farm where he will be allowed to feed the animals. When he inadvertently kills first a puppy, then a woman--the wife of the brutal ranch owner where Lennie and George find work--George kills him, in a humane act of love, before the unfortunate Lennie is hounded to his death. Steinbeck's sympathy for the plight of the downtrodden--and especially for exploited migrant workers like Lennie and George--is powerfully expressed in this novel.
Author Bio
John Steinbeck
Growing up in California, Steinbeck witnessed firsthand the struggles of migrant workers that he wrote about so eloquently in his fiction. He attended Stanford University, studying marine biology but never finishing his degree. All his fiction deals with the plight of the common man and his outrage at injustice and oppression. He is best remembered for THE GRAPES OF WRATH (1939), which led to much-needed agricultural reform and has been compared to UNCLE TOM'S CABIN in terms of its impact. In addition to writing novels, Steinbeck was also a successful screenwriter. Despite the strong sense of place in his California fiction, he lived toward the end of his life in New York City, saying, "If you have lived in New York, no place else is good enough." He was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1962.
