East of Eden
John Steinbeck’s generational epic, East of Eden, introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Dirda and illustrated by award-winning artist Edward Kinsella, was selected as Folio’s 2017 Reader’s Choice for Fiction.
‘It has everything I have been able to learn about my art or craft or profession in all these years,’ wrote John Steinbeck of East of Eden, the novel he considered his magnum opus. Coolly received when it was first published in 1952, it has grown in stature and popularity ever since, and is now recognised as the author’s most ambitious and accomplished work. This magnificent edition, published to celebrate the winner of Folio’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Fiction Competition, and produced with the highest design and production values, is a fitting testament to Steinbeck’s remarkable achievement.
