'There is only one book to a man,' Steinbeck wrote of East of Eden, his most ambitious novel. Set in the rich farmland of the Salinas Valley, California, this powerful, often brutal novel, follows the intertwined 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 identity; the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence.

  1. Steinbeck hade fel
    Ola Stefan Göransson, 27 juli 2015

    Steinbeck hävdade: 'There is only one book to a man,', men själv motbevisade han det genom att både skriva east of eden och the grapes of wrath.

    Få böcker har betytt så mycket för mig som dessa två. Steinbeck var ett geni och denna berättelse om generationer av människor är ett mästerverk.

    Precis som i grapes... Lyckas han med ett slut som är enastående och som kokar ner boken till ett ord.

"A novel planned on the grandest possible scale...One of those occasions when a writer has aimed high and then summoned every ounce of energy, talent, seriousness, and passion of which he was capable...It is an entirely interesting and impressive book." The New York Herald Tribune"A fantasia and myth...a strange and original work of art." The New York Times Book Review"A moving, crying pageant with wilderness strengths." Carl Sandburg"When the book club ended a year ago, I said I would bring it back when I found the book that was moving and this is a great one. I read it for myself for the first time and then I had some friends read it. And we think it might be the best novel we've ever read!" Oprah Winfrey"
