Cannery Row by John Steinbeck

Steinbeck rules my reading for the next few weeks this summer. I am taking a Steinbeck course that will include a visit to Steinbeck country in Salinas California next month. Cannery Row is a great little book. I would call it a series of vignettes that show the lives of the listless on Cannery Row in Monterey California. I enjoyed it immensely until I realized that I had six pages of fill in the blank questions to complete for my coursework.

Glad to see someone experiencing "Cannery Row".
You might enjoy a visit to my homepages where I have a photo essay on "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday".
Also check "Literature: Some of my favourite passages" on my site for Steinbeck.
