Summary

Summary

John Steinbeck is revered for his classic, uniquely American works of fiction. The Winter of Our Discontent features Ethan Allen Hawley, formerly of the New England aristocracy but now a humble grocery clerk. Inspiring little but resentment in his wife and daughters, Ethan nevertheless does his utmost to live an honest life. Every man, however, has his breaking point, and Ethan risks his integrity and much more as he embarks on what he hopes will be a path back to wealth and privilege.

Author Bio: John Steinbeck

Author Bio: John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck (1902–1968) remains one of the quintessential writers of American literature. Born in Salinas, California, Steinbeck attended Stanford University before working at a series of mostly blue-collar jobs and embarking on his literary career. Profoundly committed to social progress, he used his writing to raise issues of labor exploitation and the plight of the common man, penning some of the greatest American novels of the twentieth century and winning such prestigious awards as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. He received the Nobel Prize in 1962, “for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humor and keen social perception.” He wrote more than twenty-five novels during his lifetime.
