Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck

Tortilla Flat

by John Steinbeck

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs. 3 Min.


Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, Steinbeck created a Camelot on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur's castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging - men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude.

As Steinbeck chronicles their deeds - their multiple lovers, their wonderful brawls, their Rabelaisian wine-drinking - he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table, which inspired him.
