“This is the story of Danny and of Danny’s friends and of Danny’s house. It is a story of how these three became on thing.”
Danny returns from the Great War to inherit two houses in the shabby district of Tortilla Flat. He falls in with a group of poor paisanos. Together, they gossip, talk about life and plan the next drinking binge. And, when money does come their way, the parties are the kind that are not easily forgotten.

One of a series of top-quality fiction for schools, these humorous sketches by Steinbeck are in the same vein as "Cannery Row", and feature the same characters - illiterate, poverty-stricken, carefree and irresponsible paisanos from Monterey society.Review:
John Steinbeck knew and understood America and Americans better than any other writer of the twentieth century. ("The Dallas Morning News") A man whose work was equal to the vast social themes that drove him. (Don DeLillo)"
