About John Steinbeck

American author John Steinbeck is famous for his portrayals of workers struggling during the Great Depression in books such as the Dust Bowl novel The Grapes of Wrath and the novella Of Mice and Men. He was born in 1902 in California, the setting for many of his novels. Fascinated with marine biology, he joined an expedition in the Gulf of California, which led to the book The Sea of Cortez and an understanding, shown in his work, of the interdependence of living organisms. He died in 1968.
