Of Mice and Men Author:John Steinbeck Of Mice and Men is the timeless novel of every man's desire for land of his own. It is the story of lonely, rootless men who till soil that belongs to others, who never reap from the seeds they plant. The Chicago Tribune wrote:"Brutality and tenderness mingle in these strangely moving pages. The reader is fascinated by a certainty of approaching... more » doom." And in the New York Times: "a thriller, a gripping tale that you will not set down until it is finished. In sure, raucous, vulgar Americanism, Steinbeck has touched the quick."
Of Mice and Men has the immemorial heartbreak, the rough-tongued ribaldry, the inarticulate yearning of homeless men-a moving and beautiful book.« less
