A while back I decided to try to read the complete works of John Steinbeck. When I thought up that idea, I did not quite understand how many books he had written. In the various bookshops I have only ever seen a handful of books. But I was mistaken – there are more than a handful, much more. Anyway, the mission is underway.
Below Steinbeck’s bibliography adapted from his Noble Prize page. I will mark off the books I have read as I read them over the next few months. So wish me luck.
