    Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, Steinbeck created a Camelot on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur’s castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging—men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude.

    Julia says: "Different study of Steinbeck"

    If you could sum up Tortilla Flat in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting - a negative sterio-type of Mexicans in America


    What could John Steinbeck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing - really - maybe a disclamer to say this isn't really what Mexicans are like.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the baby was dying and they didn't even realize it or really seem to care.
