In his journal, John Steinbeck called East of Eden `the first book`, and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California`s Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families - the Tracks and the Hamiltons - whose generations helplessly re-enact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. Here is the work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerising characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity; the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love`s absence.
