John Steinbeck (1902–1968) Steinbeck attended Stanford University, served as a war correspondent during World War II, and was recognized as one of the world’s finest writers in his lifetime. A compassionate understanding of the disinherited is his hallmark. Much of his work is a reflection of his native region: the interior valleys of California and the Monterey coast. His writings include Tortilla Flat (1935), Of Mice and Men (1937), Grapes of Wrath (1939), East of Eden (1952), and Winter of Our Discontent (1961). He won the Pulitzer Prize in Literature in 1939 and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1962.
