From the dust jacket:


In the past ten years John Steinbeck has had published six novels, a play, and a volume of short stories.

These books, Cup of Gold, Tortilla Flat, Of Mice and Men, In Dubious Battle, and the others, assure their author a lasting position of eminence in twentieth-century letters. But with the publication of The Grapes of Wrath they will come to be looked upon as the work of his formative years. For in this, his first long novel, Steinbeck breaks the steady rhythm of his progress and takes a giant step.

"Steinbeck has always had tremendous range and versatility.... Now, with The Grapes of Wrath, he shows that he has staying power as well as variety.... It has the combined speed and drive of a thoroughbred that is also a good mud-horse. It is by all odds Steinbeck's greatest novel." —JOHN CHAMBERLAIN, Harper's

"It is going to be a great and deserved best-seller, it'll be read and praised by everyone.... Its power and importance do not lie in its political insight, but in its intense humanity, its grasp of a whole people traversing a wilderness, its kindliness, its humor and its bitter condemnation. The Grapes of Wrath is the American novel of the season, probably the year, possibly the decade." — Clifton Fadiman, The New Yorker

"Steinbeck's finest and most beautifully constructed novel, a powerful, significant social document of vital interest to all Americans in our time." -PAUL JORDAN SMITH

"I am not forgetting such books as Moby Dick and Leaves of Grass and Life on the Mississippi and Death Comes for the Archbishop when I say it seems to me as great a book as has yet come out of America." —ALEXANDER WOOLLCOTT

"No novel of our day has been written out of a more genuine humanity... Homeric chronicle of a great migration—breathless, comic, heartbreaking, almost historical... a fiery document of protest and compassion ... a story that had to be told ... and a book that must be read." —Louis KRONENBERCER, The Nation
