The life John Steinbeck led -- adventurer, writer, wanderer, philosopher-- is here immortalized in Steinbeck's own characteristic prose, unpretentious and true and with each sentence rationed with just as much wisdom and humor as it might bear.

Comprised only of letters, and most of those one-sided, the whole coalesces into so much more - snippets and musings of war and injustice, weather and politics, friendships on the rise and wane, but mostly the letters speak of the mundanities of his daily life and struggles with art and love and raising his boys to be fine, decent men, hopeful that his own shortcomings would lie dormant in them.

This book is about a man, IS the man, told by days through all the years of his life and labor. Astounding.

One of my reading specialties is collections of letters and diaries. After reading this gorgeous collection I felt like Steinbeck had inadvertantly written his autobiography. I started it on vacation on the Monterey peninsula, and happened to stumble upon his former home in Pacific Grove, which made me even more enthusiastic. Continuing to read the collection on the way back east, I found myself slowing down to savor the letters more, and didn’t want it to end. Steinbeck clearly took a lot of care in writing his correspondence, and his great spirit is thereby revealed. The editing is masterful. Instead of distracting the reader with footnotes, whole explanatory paragraphs are inserted, sometimes even in the body of the letter, making for very smooth reading. For clarity, they’re indented, and not at all intrusive. Anyone reading Steinbeck would be well advised to get this. Since I’ve only read about five of his books, it will be an enhanced pleasure to read more. Bravo to Steinbeck’s widow and Robert Wallsten, the editors.

It's not often that you can "hear" the private thoughts of another's mind. Let alone a LIFETIME of them!
Steinbeck's wife honored him, beyond measure, by helping to coordinate this book. Both Steinbeck's gave us precious gifts, in sharing the open and honest talents they posessed. That and so openly sharing their deep love, respect and friendship for eachother.
This is a timeless piece. One of the few books that I plan on returning to throughout my life. For I know that I will see and learn something new, with each reading.

Timeless. You don’t need to be a parent. You don’t have to be a letter writer...who is anymore. But we should...

Every few days, I read a few of Steinbeck's letters. Right now they tell -- more than any biography ever could -- of a driven, thoughtful, observant, optimistic, arrogant, fascinating young man. Thankfully, the letters are mostly presented "as is," in chronological order but with editorial comments limited to those that provide necessary context.

This is a wonderful book of letters from steinbeck and letters to him from friends.

The most unbelievable insight to a writer's genius. All that Steinbeck has to tell us is absolutely necessary for our own lives. A must read.
Like reading a story of his life--with a personal lens to look through.
