At supper one night---when I was 16 or 17---I told my parents I was thinking of committing suicide. When they asked why, I told them I had read everything John Steinbeck had written, so why go on. Of course, I was kidding about the suicide, but not about having read all his books. What a great author.

While not popular with everyone, In Dubious Battle is probably my favorite of all his books.
