Regular price $100.00 Sale

Steinbeck's last novel, published in 1961, tells the story of Ethan Allen Hawley, a member of a once great family turned broke. Ethan, an honest man, spends his days reliving the old days of family glory, while working as a grocery clerk in a store his family once owned. The title comes from the first two lines of William Shakespeare's Richard III: "Now is the winter of our discontent / Made glorious summer by this sun [or son] of York."
