East of Eden
John Steinbeck

Illustrated by Edward Kinsella
Introduced by Michael Dirda

John Steinbeck’s generational epic, East of Eden, introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Dirda and illustrated by award-winning artist Edward Kinsella, was selected as Folio’s 2017 Reader’s Choice for Fiction.

THE WORK OF A GREAT STORYTELLER

 With his masterwork, Steinbeck aimed to tell ‘perhaps the greatest story of all – the story of good and evil, of strength and weakness, of love and hate, of beauty and ugliness’. Blending family history and biblical allegory, he draws on the stories of the fall of Adam and Eve and the fatal rivalry of Cain and Abel to recount the intertwined fates of two families living in California’s idyllic Salinas Valley, the Trasks and the Hamiltons, from the beginning of the twentieth century to the close of the First World War. Rich in symbolic artistry and sweeping in scale, the narrative explores universal themes of love, identity and free will to reveal the primordial passions that govern us all, emotional patterns that are repeated, revised or reversed as one generation passes to the next.
