We have a change of pace from the usual extremely odd Science Fiction I am want to pick up at book sales.
John Steinbeck's "The Pastures of Heaven" is a First Edition!! Well, let us not get all excited, it is the first edition that Tower Books printed in 1946... Yeah, not so good since the story was originally released in 1932. As was the way things were done in the printing world back then there might have been five or ten company's printing the same book! Anyway, I picked this up because the lads at work are on a 'Steinbeck' tear, saying, "Man, the stories are great, but they are SO depressing!"
I pointed out the common thread in all his stories that no good deed goes unpunished... 😉#Steinbeck #1930sbook
