EAST OF EDEN

by John Stein­beck, Penguin/ Ran­dom House.

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS -

OH MY! This book kills me. It is so sweep­ing and ex­pan­sive and en­com­passes large tracts of hu­man­ity in its slow, deep trudge through var­i­ous lives. Span­ning gen­er­a­tions, the char­ac­ters are so wise I lit­er­ally wrote out large screeds of di­a­logue. One of my favourites: “All great and pre­cious things are lonely.”
