Someday soon I'll return to Monterey with this book in hand and revisit those places where Doc, Mack, Dora and Lee Chong really lived and breathed. Of course, I'll don a leather jacket, brown Fedora and will my psyche back into the 40's. In short, a fantastic complement to Steinbeck's Monterey-based books.
It is the most fascinating book and gives a REAL and OPEN view into the life and times of people characterised in Cannery Row.
This book truely makes Cannery Row come alive.
If you love the book or the movie, you absolutely have to buy this book!
Puts you right on the spots.
This great little book is now the indispensable companion reader to John Steinbeck's "Cannery Row"--as valuable to the reader for the pleasure of John Steinbeck's art, as for the serious student or researcher on the subject. A Steinbeck collector's library is now incomplete without it.
--Michael K. Hemp, The History Company
The author spent considerable time and effort to interview living persons from the era to validate events and explain the true-life connections that inspired John Steinbeck's writings of Cannery Row.
Readers and Cannery Row aficiondos will appreciate the numerous rare photographs as well as the author's notes and references throughout the book. Well done!
