    This was my first Steinbeck. I wanted s Novella to start me off. A funny and weird novel and very enjoyable.

    ...there lived a bad man who kept a bad pig. He was a bad man because he laughed too much at the wrong times and at the wrong people. What an opening. This short book was my first encounter with the writings of John Steinbeck but I'll be back for more as I rather enjoyed this small glimpse into a very clever writer. ...there lived a bad man who kept a bad pig.
