Of Mice and Men
This powerful book tells the story of two outsiders, George and Lennie, who are in search of work and a dream - a place to call their own. Set in California's Salinas Valley, they eventually find work but their hopes are quickly dashed. Full of universal themes such as friendship and giving voice to America's lonely and dispossessed, Of Mice and Men has become one of Steinbeck's most popular and successful works.
