Of Mice and Men, Paperback


Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie, have nothing in the world except each other - and a dream.

A dream that one day they will have some land of their own.

Eventually they find work on a ranch, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie - struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and jealousy - becomes a victim of his own strength.

Tackling universal themes, friendship and a shared vision, and giving a voice to America's lonely and dispossesed, Of Mice and Men remains Steinbeck's most popular work.
