John Steinbeck: The Making of a New Yorker

“ When I came the first time to New York in 1925 I had never been to a city in my life…”

John Steinbeck visited and lived in New York several times, living there permanently from the early 1950s until his death in 1968. It is where he wrote most of East of Eden, and unlike Hemingway, who hated the city, John became content and happy there.
