One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World' 'Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream.' Meet the gamblers, whores, drunks, bums and artists of Cannery Row in Monterey, California, during the Great Depression. They want to throw a party for their friend Doc, so Mack and the boys set about, in their own inimitable way, recruiting everyone in the neighbourhood to the cause. But along the way they can't help but get involved in a little mischief and misadventure. It wouldn't be Cannery Row if it was otherwise, now would it? Packed with a ramshackle joi de vivre, Cannery Row is Steinback's high-spirited tribute to his native California. 'Uninhibited, bawdy, compassionate, inquisitive, deeply intelligent' Daily Telegraph

Det är Steinbeck.

Småmysig bok, varken mer eller mindre tycker jag. Blir inte så värst personlig dock, men den har en hel del värme som uppväger att den känns aningen intetsägande.

en bok jag läser om minst en gång varje år, helst på sommaren
