Biography - John Steinbeck: An American Writer (2000)

One of America's greatest writers, John Steinbeck paradoxically remains one of our country's least understood artists. Now, discover the fascinating story of the literary giant who, when asked if he deserved the 1962 Nobel Prize for his work, politely replied "Frankly, no." Witness the extraordinary life work of this celebrated author, illustrated through excerpts from such masterpieces as The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, East of Eden and Cannery Row. See how Steinbeck's concern for the underdog made him a hero with America's masses -- and a feared enemy of the Establishment. And get a deeply intimate glimpse of the man behind the books through conversations with Steinbeck's widow, son and close friends including playwrights Edward Albee and Terence McNally. This deeply moving BIOGRAPHY reveals the tortured soul beneath the acclaimed American legend whose compassionate, visionary writing challenged the status quo and touched the soul of a nation.
