    Inhaltsangabe

    In the din and stink that is Cannery Row a colourful blend of misfits - gamblers, whores, drunks, bums and artists - survive side by side in a jumble of adventure and mischief. Lee Chong, the astute owner of the well-stocked grocery store, is also the proprietor of the Palace Flophouse that Mack and his troupe of good-natured 'boys' call home. Dora, of the flaming orange hair and taste for Nile-green dresses, runs the brothel with clockwork efficiency and a generous heart. Doc, who owns the laboratory, is the fount of all wisdom. Everybody wants to do something nice for Doc: the trouble is, he always ends up paying.

    Packed with invention and joie de vivre CANNERY ROW is Steinbeck's high-spirited tribute to his native California.

    True mastery in character creation

    At first I was irritated by the seeming lack of a big story line but then soon became enthralled with the characters and mood created by John Steinbeck. He creates a world of lost souls who find the comfort they can get in each other. Underneath though one can feel a tone of despair disguised by optimism. Entertainingly performed and a great listen. It's books like this one never forgets.
