Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck
So my summer of Steinbeck is almost over. I bought a copy of Winter of Our Discontent in California at the Steinbeck Center after finding that my cousin's daughter wrote about this novel on her AP Lit test this year. It did not disappoint. I am still under the spell of Steinbeck's prose - nothing else this summer, Oates aside, has quite compared. There are pages of one-liner super quotes in this late novel of Steinbeck's.
