East of Eden

East of Eden

John Steinbeck
Steinbe

Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families—the Trasks and the Hamiltons—whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.—Penguin Putnam



"This book shook me to my core when I was 18, and I've read it pretty much every year since then. I'm still grappling with some of the questions this book asks."—Submitted by Macklin, Teen Services Librarian
