I just started reading The Grapes of Wrath. As I work my way through it, I will also be reading the notes John Steinbeck made during the writing of the novel. I will then review both books.
4/11/17 Some thoughts--After a long introduction, I'm finally into the novel. Holy cats. Now I remember just how awesome Steinbeck is. Looking at it from a writer's perspective, he is amazing. From a reader's perspective, he may be telling me more than I want or need to know.
