9780140048896: Sweet Thursday

Steinbeck's sequel to "Cannery Row". Times have changed. World War II has left Cannery Row rustier and dustier than even Doc can remember it. But the Palace Flop-house remains the institution and landmark it has always been, and Mack and the boys are only too pleased to welcome him home.

Product Description:

After the war, Doc is welcomed back to the Palace Flop-house by Mack and the boys, who decide in secret that he needs a woman. Suzy, the new girl at the house called Bear Flag, seems to fit the bill, but it turns out that Doc knows even less about women than everyone had thought.
