Review :

Steinbeck is a poet. . . . Everything is real, everything perfect. Upton Sinclair, Common Sense

I think, and with earnest and honest consideration . . . that The Grapes of Wrath is the greatest American novel I have ever read." Dorothy Parker

It seems to me as great a book as has yet come out of America. Alexander Woollcott

-Steinbeck is a poet. . . . Everything is real, everything perfect.-
--Upton Sinclair, Common Sense

-I think, and with earnest and honest consideration . . . that The Grapes of Wrath is the greatest American novel I have ever read.-
--Dorothy Parker

-It seems to me as great a book as has yet come out of America.-
--Alexander Woollcott
-I didn't understand at the time -- no one could have -- that [The Grapes of Wrath] was not just a historical document but also a document about our current world with its depiction of drought and its effects (...) California, where the Joads went, is no longer the reliably verdant and green paradise they found; it's now coming out of a five-year drought of its own (...) The other point that Steinbeck makes well, is that when we have huge, natural changes like these, the people who pay the largest price are the people most vulnerable and closest to the bottom (...) None of them did anything much to cause the problem, and yet they are its early victims (...) Steinbeck was trying to do something more than just simply tell a story. He's a remarkable writer, and this is his masterpiece.-
-- Bill McKibben, environmentalist
