Publisher Comments:

First published in 1945, John Steinbecks classic novel Cannery Row paints a picture of West Coast neighborhood life in the era following the Great Depression. Mack, the leader of a group of local bums, decides that he wants to do something nice for Doc, a marine biologist and neighborhood genius, so he throws Doc a party in his lab. When Doc returns home—late because he was doing research on the seashore—the party is already over and his lab has been trashed. Ashamed of the mess theyve made, Mack and his friends make another attempt at celebrating Doc, this time with more success. A series of vignettes, introducing other residents such as Lee Chong, the Chinese grocer who extends credit to help Mack with his party, and Dora, the kind-hearted madam of the local brothel, complements the main story and offers a rich panorama of life on Cannery Row.

 

Publicada por primera vez en 1945, la novela clásica de John Steinbeck Cannery Row retrata la vida de un barrio en la Costa Oeste en los años después de la Gran Depresión. Mack, el líder de un grupo de vagabundos, decide que quiere hacer una buena acción a Doc, un biólogo marino y el genio del barrio, así que organiza una fiesta para Doc en su laboratorio. Cuando Doc regresa a casa—tarde porque estaba haciendo investigación a la orilla del mar—la fiesta ya ha terminado y su laboratorio ha quedado destrozado. Avergonzados por el lío que han hecho, Mack y sus amigos intentan otra vez agasajar a Doc, esta vez con más éxito. Una serie de viñetas, introduciendo otros residentes como Lee Chong, el tendero chino quien le extiende crédito a Mack para ayudar con la fiesta, y Dora, la bondadosa madame de un burdel, complementa la historia principal y ofrece una panorama rica de la vida en Cannery Row.
