John Steinbeck was a [[UsefulNotes/PulitzerPrize Pulitzer]] and Nobel Prize-winning American author. He wrote twenty-seven books within his lifetime, and became influential in his writing style and views.

He was born in 1902 by the Salinas river in UsefulNotes/{{California}} out in the country, which affected many of the settings of his works. A simple man, he labored alongside the migrant workers that inspired him. After leaving Stanford University without a degree, he set off his career with ''Tortilla Flat'', a novel set in post-UsefulNotes/WorldWarI Monterey. His Dust Bowl novels set in California garnered critical success and became some of his most popular works, such as ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen''. ''Literature/TheGrapesOfWrath'' won the Pulitzer Prize in 1940, and became a controversial but influential work that ended up on the list of banned novels. It caused controversy with his liberal political views. The negative angle on capitalism and the representation of the Okies made trouble for him, but the book remained a success and is considered by many to be his best work.
