Book Synopsis

Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, John Steinbeck created a “Camelot” on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur’s castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging—men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude.
As Nobel Prize winner Steinbeck chronicles their deeds—their multiple lovers, their wonderful brawls, their Rabelaisian wine-drinking—he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table, which inspired him.

    I really liked this book. Although it's not considered one of his major works, it shows Steinbeck's genius for brilliant story telling. Set in Monterrey, California it's a universal story with exceptional characterizations. For anyone out there with a free spirit, read this book!

    My favorite book of all time. Incredibly well done. Funny, entertaining, and heart-warmingly sad all at the same time.
