I think it is a rather fine thread. when you squint and pull your eyelids to the side, it looks just like any other thread, if not better!

Gus- It has simply reached its logical conclusion. Hey, what about the Jelly Belly's?

I thought "The Grapes of Wrath" was, like, awesome. Totally rad.

I have no idea what a jelly belly is. Unless you're talking about that chick in Cleveland back in '34.

But how would you know about her?

Now we're getting somewhere! "The Grapes of Wrath" was, like, awesome, but not nearly as satisfying as "The Wayward Bus"

I think Steinbeck wrote about her in the Cannery (is that the right translation? I read it in Czech. It was called Na plecharne).

What else have you read by Steinbeck, Dag?

If you haven't read "The Wayward Bus", I would suggest you do so.

An incredible dissection of the thought process of the various characters.

Hey Gus- Are you sure that you haven't confused it with "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf", by Edward Albee?

that did sound disgusting. shame on you. i have not read the wayward bus. i must. i am now on a Rohit Gupta splurge. Young guy I met in Mumbai who blew my mind away. I mentioned him in my diary that nobody read. If you google him, you'll find some shorter things by him, but his books are hard to get - i just got one and it's being shipped to me from india. play-on edward it's called. oh sigh. what a wonderful...errr...writer he is.

Loved "Grapes of Wrath" book and movie.

I never could finish "East of Eden" - I tried at least 3 times. Was James Dean in the movie?

Interesting. The Wayward Bus and East of Eden are among the Steinbeck books that I have never read. (There are probably others, as well.)

Dag, in English it's Cannery Row. There's also a sequel -- Sweet Thursday -- which has many of the same characters. (Those two I have read, along with some others.)

Gus, have you read Tortilla Flat? Hilarious book.

I listened to an audiobook version of Tortilla Flat; very enjoyable. But I wonder if its portrayal of shiftless, drunken paesanos would even be publishable today...
