Description

A masterpiece of Biblical scope, and the magnum opus of one of America’s most enduring authors, in a commemorative hardcover edition
 
In his journal, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck called East of Eden "the first book," and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families—the Trasks and the Hamiltons—whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.
The masterpiece of Steinbeck’s later years, East of Eden is a work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. Adapted for the 1955 film directed by Elia Kazan introducing James Dean, and read by thousands as the book that brought Oprah’s Book Club back, East of Eden has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century.

      • content: Richard Poe's performance of EAST OF EDEN, John Steinbeck's allegory of Cain and Abel, is a masterpiece. Although not the critical success of some of Steinbeck's other works, this is a title that every audiobook aficionado should experience. The novel is about characters, and about "character," which Poe clearly understands. He reads as though inhabiting the psyches of the two generations of Trask men around whom the story revolves: Charles and Adam, and Caleb and Aron. Where Poe truly excels, however, is with his portrayals of other key figures, in particular, Lee, the Trasks' loyal servant, friend, and confidante, and Cathy Ames, whom Adam marries, only to be betrayed in more than biblical ways. The book is long but moves at a surprisingly brisk pace for such a dense yet thoroughly accessible work. D.J.S.
