John Steinbeck, "Of Mice and Men,' a Bantam Book, published with an arrangement with The Viking Press, Inc., first published in 1937, this copy is the second printing as a Bantam Classic, December 1958.
Of Mice and Men is a 118 page paperback measuring 7" x 4 1/4". The cover has a crease along the spine and surface wear. Inside, there is a small red check mark on the front end paper, tanning along the page edges, and the back cover glue is cracked but still attached to the body. The condition is acceptable.
When Steinbeck's story of George and Lennie, the two wayfaring California farmhands who dreamed of a patch of ground to call their own, first appeared, The Atlantic wrote: "You recognize in them a hunger which moves all men." Of Mice and Men has the immemorial heartbreak, the rough-tongued ribaldry, the inarticulate yearning of homeless men--a moving and profoundly beautiful book.
