Working Days: The Journals of the Grapes of Wrath, 1938-1941
This book marks the 50the anniversary of the publication of The Grapes of Wrath. During the creation of the novel, Steinbeck faithfully kept a journal revealing a tale of dramatic proportions--of dogged determination, inspiration and of paranoia, self-doubt, and obstacles. The journals record the conception and genesis of the novel and present a vivid cast of characters who left their mark on the novel: Carol Henning Steinbeck, his wife, editor, typist, and confidante; Elizabeth Otis, his trusted literary agent; and Pascal Covici, his longtime editor and literary conscience. ISBN 0-670-80845-8: $18.95.
