As I mentioned below, I first read this when I was a kid – loved it, understood the suffering, didn’t realise quite how explicitly political it was. This time it slayed me. Brilliant, awful, heartbreaking, righteous. Amid and after all the awfulness, Steinbeck still had so much hope and belief in the human spirit. Something I wish I shared…

With passages that cut to the black heart of the market like nothing else I’ve read.

John Steinbeck, The Grapes Of Wrath
