About the John Steinbeck - The Pearl

Description

The Pearl is a novella by the American author John Steinbeck. The story, first published in 1947, follows a pearl diver, Kino, and explores man’s purpose as well as greed, defiance of societal norms, and evil. Steinbeck's inspiration was a Mexican folk tale from La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, which he had heard in a visit to the formerly pearl-rich region in 1940.

The story is one of Steinbeck's most popular books and has been widely used in middle and high school classes. The Pearl is sometimes considered a parable.

Published by Penguin Modern Classics, 1994. Paperback.

The book is in fine condition almost as new, no major blemishes but showing signs of being previously owned. No major faults.

This is a pre-owned, donated book.
