9780142429211: East of Eden (Penguin Classics)|Penguin Classics

'Our species is the only creative species, and it has only one creative instrument, the individual mind and spirit of a man.'

California's fertile Salinas Valley is home to two families whose destinies are fruitfully, and fatally, intertwined. Over the generations, between the beginning of the twentieth century and the end of the First World War, the Trasks and the Hamiltons will helplessly replay the fall of Adam and Eve and the murderous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

East of Eden was considered by Steinbeck to be his magnum opus, and its epic scope and memorable characters, exploring universal themes of love and identity, ensure it remains one of America's most enduring novels.

Product Description:

Steinbeck's saga of the Trasks and the Hamiltons, two families whose histories are deeply intertwined. Set in rural California at the turn of the century, it is a tale laced with adultery, murder and conflict between brother and brother, father and son.

Review:

"A novel planned on the grandest possible scale...One of those occasions when a writer has aimed high and then summoned every ounce of energy, talent, seriousness, and passion of which he was capable...It is an entirely interesting and impressive book."
The New York Herald Tribune

"A fantasia and myth...a strange and original work of art."
The New York Times Book Review

"A moving, crying pageant with wilderness strengths."
Carl Sandburg

"When the book club ended a year ago, I said I would bring it back when I found the book that was moving and this is a great one. I read it for myself for the first time and then I had some friends read it. And we think it might be the best novel we've ever read!"
Oprah Winfrey"
