George and Lennie are an unlikely pair: George is small and quick, and Lennie is a man of tremendous size and simple mind. But together they’ve formed a family, rallying against seclusion and alienation. As laborers in California’s vegetable fields in the Great Depression, they find work where they can, but they have big dreams of owning land and a shack they can call their own. So when they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, their big dreams suddenly seem within reach. But George cannot guard the childlike Lennie from life’s provocations, nor can he predict the consequences of Lennie’s unswerving obedience to what George has taught him. A tragic and moving story of friendship, loneliness, and the dispossessed, Of Mice and Men is classic John Steinbeck—heart wrenching and remarkable.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

In Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck’s beautifully rendered depictions of small yet fateful moments that transform ordinary lives, these twelve early stories introduce both the subject and style of artistic expression that recur in the most important works of his career. Each of these self-contained stories is linked to the others by the presence of the Munroes, a family whose misguided behavior and lack of sensitivity precipitate disasters and tragedies. As the individual dramas unfold, Steinbeck reveals the self-deceptions, intellectual limitations, and emotional vulnerabilities that shape the characters’ reactions and gradually erode the harmony and dreams that once formed the foundation of the community. This edition includes an introduction and notes by James Nagel. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators. From the Trade Paperback edition.
