Novella by John Steinbeck, published in 1937. The tragic
story, given poignancy by its objective narrative, is about
the complex bond between two migrant laborers. The book,
which was adapted by Steinbeck into a three-act play
(produced 1937), earned him national renown. The plot
centers on George Milton and Lennie Small, itinerant ranch
hands who dream of one day owning a small farm. George acts
as a father figure to Lennie, who is large and simpleminded,
calming him and helping to rein in his immense physical
strength. When Lennie accidentally kills the ranch owner's
flirtatious daughter-in-law, George shoots his friend rather
than allow him to be captured by a vengeful lynch mob.
