Description

American writer John Steinbeck won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the Nobel Prize for combining “sympathetic humor and keen social perception.”

Longtime friends Lennie and George cling to each other as they’re driven from job to job by simple-minded Lennie’s inability to fit society’s norms.  George needs Lennie’s friendship as much as Lennie needs George to look out for him – “a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody.”  

But just as their humble dreams seem to float within reach, “the best laid schemes o’mice an’ men” begin to go hopelessly awry.
