Steinbeck is probably one of America's greatest novelist from the 20th Century. He wrote The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, and other novels and non-fiction.

He lived from 1902 to 1968. Was born in California and is the only California native to win the Nobel Prize in Literature (1962).

Check out some of the links below:

Needless to say, he is my favorite writer.
