TORTILLA FLAT – Romance, by John Steinbeck

In 1962, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his realistic and imaginative scriptures, impregnated with acute social perception. JOHN STEINBECK, one of the most well-known US writers of the twentieth century, was born in Salinas (California) in 1902. Here, he spent serene childhood, developing a strong bond with the Salinas valley and the nearby Pacific coast, spending part of teenage time writing stories and poetry.

Nearly eighty years after its release, this novel, which decreed John Steinbeck’s literary success, preserves the charm of the American epic intact. The book portrays a group of “paisanos” – literally, countrymen, a small band of errant friends enjoying life and wine in the days after the end of the Great War. The novel is all about how a couple of friends become a collective, which is greater than each dude on his own. What gives the novel its narrative arc, it is the formation of Danny’s House (where these men live), beginning with the moment, when Danny inherits the house and ending with the day when it burned down.
