John Ernst Steinbeck, Jr. (1902-1968) was an American author who won the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humour and keen social perception." He has been called "a giant of American letters," and many of his works are considered classics of Western literature.
During his writing career, Steinbeck authored 27 books, including 16 novels, six non-fiction books, and two collections of short stories.
