Book Description Penguin Publishing Group, United States, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Each working day from January 29 to November 1, 1951, John Steinbeck warmed up to the work of writing East of Eden with a letter to the late Pascal Covici, his friend and editor at The Viking Press. It was his way, he said, of getting my mental arm in shape to pitch a good game. Steinbeck s letters were written on the left-hand pages of a notebook in which the facing pages would be filled with the test of East of Eden. They touched on many subjects--story arguments, trial flights of worknamship, concern for his sons. Part autobiography, part writer s workshop, these letters offer an illuminating perspective on Steinbeck s creative process, and a fascinating glimpse of Steinbeck, the private man.
