The Grapes of Wrath

grapes of wrath

The Grapes of Wrath was published today in 1939.  Dorothy Parker said it was the greatest American novel she had ever read.  My husband said it ruined him for all other novels. My brother, who was never a “reader,” says it is his favorite books of all time.  It’s just one of those books.  Happy birthday, you dear and great American novel.
