9780142429204: The Pearl (Penguin Classics)

Kino is a desperately poor Mexican-pearl diver. But when he finds 'The Pearl of the World' he believes that his life will be magically transformed. Obsessed by his dreams, Kino is blind to the greed, fear and even violence the pearl arouses in his neighbours - and himself.

A haunting and timeless tale of wealth and the evil it can bring.

Book Description Penguin Audiobooks. No binding. Book Condition: New. Audio CD. Dimensions: 5.7in. x 5.2in. x 0.8in.There it lay, the great pearl, perfect as the moon. One of Steinbecks most taught works, The Pearl is the story of the Mexican diver Kino, whose discovery of a magnificent pearl from the Gulf beds means the promise of a better life for his impoverished family. His dream blinds him to the greed and suspicions the pearl arouses in him and his neighbors, and even his loving wife Juana cannot temper his obsession or stem the events leading to tragedy. This classic novella from Nobel Prize-winner John Steinbeck examines the fallacy of the American dream, and illustrates the fall from innocence experienced by people who believe that wealth erases all problems. This deluxe centennial edition features french flaps and deckle-edges pages. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Audio CD.
