Author Info
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.
