    East of Eden by John Steinbeck

The masterpiece of Steinbeck's later years -- a powerful and vastly ambitious novel that is at once a family saga and a modern retelling of the Book of Genesis. Set in rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families--the Trasks and the Hamiltons--whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

Year: 1952
