Fiction - Published: 28/May/2014 - ISBN: 9780141394909

'In the town they tell the story of the great pearl - how it was found and how it was lost agin. They tell of Kino, the fisherman, and of his wife, Juana, and of the baby, Coyotito. And because the story has been told so often, it has taken root in every man's mind. And, as with all retold tales that are in people's hearts, there are only good and bad things and black and white things and good and evil things and no in-between anywhere.'

'Steinbeck at the top of his form.' The New York Times

'A man whose work was equal to the vast social themes that drove him.' Don DeLillo

'A novelist who is also a true poet.' Sunday Times

'Like all great artists, Steinbeck involved himself in the human condition . . . a writer of immense sensitivity.' San Francisco Chronicle
