Jim In 1962, John Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for literature for his "realistic and imaginative writing, combining as it does sympathetic humor and keen social perception."

David Postle | 50 comments That's pretty close to my list.
just add The Red Pony
The Moon is Down
The Wayward Bus and
The Winter of Our Discontent

I saw the Short Reign of Pippin IV at a book fair recently, but didn't get it because I misread the title and thought there were 3 prequels. Silly me!!!!!

I'm going back on Sunday for half-price day,
so if they still have it, I'll pick it up, but chances are it's already gone.
