Product Description

In his journal, John Steinbeck called EAST OF EDEN 'the first book,' and indeed it has the primordial power andf simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families - the Trasks and the Hamiltons - whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. First published in 1952, the novel is the work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes : the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. 601p.
