East of Eden
East of Eden is a work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. Adapted for the 1955 film directed by Elia Kazan introducing James Dean and read by thousands as the book that brought Oprahʹs Book Club back, East of Eden has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century.

The enormity and profoundness of this book will haunt me for a long time. It is like life itself - boring at times, sluggish, painful, angering, sickening, bringing about grief and joy. But most importantly, it has left a mark and I am grateful to have come across this treasure. Read full review
