In a Near Fine dust jacket that has suffered minor toning to the spine panel with a few short cracks on the spine fold, but generally in excellent condition. Steinbeck's vivid and joyous portrayal of the residents of Tortilla Flat, set in Monterey, California. The book was modeled on the Arthurian legends of knights of Camelot, a story that had seized Steinbeck's imagination since he had been a child. Tortilla Flat was the first book Steinbeck wrote that received both warm reviews and good sales and was referenced by the Swedish Academy when Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. It was also adapted into a 1942 film, starring Spencer Tracy and Hedy Lamarr. "Mr. Steinbeck tells a number of first rate stories in his history of Danny's house. He has a gift for drollery and for turning Spanish talk and phrases into a gently mocking English. The book is consistently amusing..." (Contemporary New York Times Review).
