Abstract:

"Washed up on the shore of Monterey Bay are an odd assortment of characters -- Lee Chong, grocer and general provider; Dora Flood and the girls of her Bear Flag Restaurant; Mack and the boys, casual labourers in the sardine canneries only when the need for food and alcohol grows too great, and Doc, owner and operator of the Western Biological Laboratory, fountain of all science, philosophy and art for his neighbours, the man for whom everyone wants to do something nice, but who usually ends up paying. Cannery Row is John Steinbeck's hymn to the human flotsam and jetsam of his native place, and he encapsulates their small world in lyrical and moving prose." -- Back cover.
