In Monterey, on the California coast, Sweet Thursday is what they call the day after Lousy Wednesday, which is one of those days that are just naturally bad. Returning to the scene of Cannery Row--the weedy lots and junk heaps and flophouses of Monterey, John Steinbeck once more brings to life the denizens of a netherworld of laughter and tears--from Doc, based on Steinbeck's lifelong friend Ed Ricketts, to Fauna, new headmistress of the local brothel, to Hazel, a bum whose mother must have wanted a daughter. This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction and notes by Robert DeMott.

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.
