Steinbeck, John "East of Eden" - 1952
John Steinbeck is a wonderful author, his writing is almost poetry, his thoughts philosophical and, yet, his stories are so alive.
An excellent report about growing up, growing in different directions, about good and evil, young and old, a very moving story, so many lives that you fear and hope with.
A retelling of the story of Cain and Abel, I have always loved this book and read it a few times. The movie is also great.
