15 Long Classic Reads To Keep You Company During Quarantine

Few novels have ever come to symbolize an entire era. And the most striking of these is the most talked-about American book of the 20th century. The time period is set in the 30s, the big crash, the archetypal economic crisis that was impressed with horror in the collective fantasy. And the writer who described it and explained it so loudly and so clearly that his work will go down in history forever, is John Steinbeck, with "Grapes of Wrath." The "Grapes of Wrath" is a hymn to man and humanity, to the power of the family, to the small acts of human goodness. Through the story of the Jude family, uprooted and displaced, a truth is proclaimed: and this truth, given by a literary immediacy that is riveting, is absolute and as compelling today as it was when it was first written.
