    Dear Mack and the boys in Palace Flophouse I can t tell you how grateful I am for the advice you gave the author in the prologue You were entirely right, and helped him write a masterpiece After all, who would know better than you how to describe the intricate balance of talk, action and hooptedoodle, and chapters and settings and characters that form the unforgettable micro cosmos of Cannery Row Uninformed people might get the notion that Cannery Row is a hopeless dump filled with uneducate Dear Mack and the boys in Palace Flophouse I can t tell you how grateful I am for the advice you gave the author in the prologue You were e...

    I was in Monterey quite recently and even visited the Steinbeck house in Salinas, so I thought it would be a damn good time to read another Steinbeck As per usual, it was a really good read and as per usual, I was right But then again, it s always a good time to read Steinbeck Having said that, I do worry every time I read one of his books, because all the character s always die and it will always be sad The amount of hyperbole in that previous sentence is nothing to the level of my forgetful I was in Monterey quite recently and even visited the Steinbeck house in Salinas, so I thought it would be a damn good time to read another Steinbeck As per usual, it was a really good read and as per usual, I was right But then again, it s always a good time to read Steinbeck Having said that, I do worry every time I read one of his books, because all the character ...
