Editorial Reviews

A portrait of the brilliant writer ("The Grapes of Wrath") who struggled with a tortured soul. He won the Nobel Prize, but never lost his own sense of worthlessness. Playwrights Edward Albee and Terrence McNally, as well as widow Elaine and son Thom Steinbeck, offer their special insights.

Although the material covered is similar, this video biography of John Steinbeck is far better than the one produced by Kultur, which is sparse on visuals and narrated by a Brit with a weak ear for American idiom. Peter Jones's version, on the other hand, is visually vital, emotionally compelling, and convincingly narrated by the actor Liev Schreiber. I recommend it for any school class or age group reading Steinbeck, the most American of modern American authors, for the first time.
