Summary of Cannery Row Summary of Cannery Row Reviews for Cannery Row An Excerpt from Cannery Row
Today, nearly forty years after his death, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck remains one of America’s greatest writers and cultural figures. We have begun publishing his many works for the first time as blackspine Penguin Classics featuring eye-catching, newly commissioned art. This season we continue with the seven spectacular and influential books East of Eden, Cannery Row, In Dubious Battle, The Long Valley, The Moon Is Down, The Pastures of Heaven, and Tortilla Flat. Penguin Classics is proud to present these seminal works to a new generation of readers—and to the many who revisit them again and again.

John Steinbeck knew and understood America and Americans better than any other writer of the twentieth century. (The Dallas Morning News)

A man whose work was equal to the vast social themes that drove him. (Don DeLillo)
