    John Steinbeck was a compulsive writer In a letter to his editor and friend Pat Covici in 1960, he recorded his excitement about a planned trip by campervan around the United States Steinbeck wrote I nearly always write just as I nearly always breathe The association of writing with life itself defines Steinbeck He wrote novels, plays, screenplays, opinion pieces, political speeches, travel journalism and war reportage And, of course, lett...

    I ve been working on this book a long time a year or better I would read a little here and there I found it fascinating and couldn t put it down at times But, I would force myself to only read a letter or two at a time because it was just something to be savored Last night, I decided to just go ahead and finish it I had 200 pages left It s good I finished the last 200 pages so quickly It was depressing I mean, it s hard to finish a book you have been reading so long and enjoying so mu I ve...

    Steinbeck never got around to writing an autobiography He mooted it many times but the impulses never energized him to write about himself or to frame his life within a narrative structure.This massive project is the equivalent, perhaps better, than conscious self conceptualization because it catches Steinbeck at his most unguarded Hundreds of letters were gathered just aft...

    This is the kind of book you own and pick it up and read randomly every night or day I absolutely loved it but had to give it back to the library I admit that the only Steinbeck I ve read is Of Mice and Menbut oh, how fascinating to read about his life in his own words Amazing

    This is an odd book to have on a list of personal standouts, but it s there because, quite apart from being a terrific collection of correspondence from a man who dealt with everything including his own psyche by expressing it in writing to other people, I happened to be reading it during a very bad and lonely patch and suddenly found him articulating exactly what I was feeling and going through I can still remember the revelation and the relief of discovering someone else had been there and ma This is an odd book to have on a list of personal standouts, but it s there because, quite apart from being a terrific collection of correspondence from a man who dealt with everything including his own psyche by expressing it in writing to other people, I happened to be reading it during a very bad and lonely patch and suddenly found him articulating exactly what I was feeling and going through I can still remember the revelation and the relie...
