Synopsis

'I've done my damndest to rip a reader's nerves to rags, I don't want him satisfied.' Shocking and controversial when it was first published, The Grapes of Wrath is Steinbeck's Pultizer Prize-winning epic of the Joad family, forced to travel west from Dust Bowl era Oklahoma in search of the promised land of California. Their story is one of false hopes, thwarted desires and powerlessness, yet out of their struggle Steinbeck created a drama that is both intensely human and majestic in its scale and moral vision.

John Steinbeck (1902-68) is remembered as one of the greatest and best-loved American writers of the twentieth century. During the 1930s, his works included The Red Pony, Pastures of Heaven, Tortilla Flat, In Dubious Battle, and Of Mice and Men. The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939, earned him a Pulitzer Prize. In 1962, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Author Choice

I was sent on assignment in 2009 to produce a body of work looking at the worsening economic situation in America, during the global downturn of that time. I followed the route of the Joad family from Steinbeck's classic, from Oklahoma to California, using the old Route 66 wherever possible but having to follow the new interstate I-40 for the majority of the time. Not having previously read Grapes of Wrath I was treated to it whilst on the road trip, finally reaching its wrenching conclusion at the same time I eventually made it to the Weedpatch camp near Bakersfield.
