Publisher's Summary

In his first novel to follow the publication of his enormous success The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck's vision comes wonderfully to life in this imaginative and unsentimental chronicle of a bus traveling California's back roads, transporting the lost and the lonely, the good and the greedy, the stupid and the scheming, the beautiful and the vicious away from their shattered dreams and, possibly, toward the promise of the future. This edition features an introduction by Gary Scharnhorst.

WONDERFUL READ! GREAT CHARACTERS!

What did you love best about The Wayward Bus?

THE WAY STEINBECK DEVELOPED ALL THE CHARACTERS.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wayward Bus?

I LOVED THE SCENE WHERE ALICE WAS GETTING LOADED IN THE DINER. ANOTHER GREAT MOMENT WAS WHEN MR. PRITCHARD LOST HIS BALANCE ON THE BUS IT WAS A HILARIOUS HAPLESS FALL.


What about Richard Poe’s performance did you like?

SUPERB!


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES BUT I READ IT IN SEVERAL. MY SIG. OTHER MIKE LOVED THE BOOK TOO1


Any additional comments?

THE STORY COULD GO ON AND ON, I WOULD NOT BE TIRED OF READING IT. MR. STEINBECK KNOWS HUNAN NATURE.
