California's fertile Salinas Valley is home to two families whose destinies are fruitfully, and fatally, intertwined. Over the generations, between the beginning of the twentieth century and the end of the First World War, the Trasks and the Hamiltons will helplessly replay the fall of Adam and Eve and the murderous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

East of Eden was considered by Steinbeck to be his magnum opus, and its epic scope and memorable characters, exploring universal themes of love and identity, ensure it remains one of America's most enduring novels. This edition features a stunning new cover by renowned artist Bijou Karman.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The work of a great storyteller * Washington Post *
A novel planned on the grandest possible scale...One of those occasions when a writer has aimed high and then summoned every ounce of energy, talent, seriousness, and passion of which he was capable...It is an entirely interesting and impressive book * New York Herald Tribune *
When the book club ended a year ago, I said I would bring it back when I found the book that was moving...and this is a great one. I read it for myself for the first time and then I had some friends read it. And we think it might be the best novel we've ever read! -- Oprah Winfrey
A strange and original work of art * New York Times Book Review *
A moving, crying pageant with wilderness strengths -- Carl Sandburg

“A really good book”

I read of mice and men in school and it was okay, but the East of Eden I enjoyed much more! John Steinbeck's way of writing is truly beautiful and he can evoke a scene so well that it makes me jealous. The story... More
