Book Overview

There it lay, the great pearl, perfect as the moon.

A Penguin Classic

One of Steinbeck's most taught works, The Pearl is the story of the Mexican diver Kino, whose discovery of a magnificent pearl from the Gulf beds means the promise of a better life for his impoverished family. His dream blinds him to the greed and suspicions the pearl arouses in him and his neighbors, and even his loving wife Juana cannot temper his obsession or stem the events leading to tragedy. This classic novella from Nobel Prize-winner John Steinbeck examines the fallacy of the American dream, and illustrates the fall from innocence experienced by people who believe that wealth erases all problems.

This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by Linda Wagner-Martin and original illustrations by Mexican artist Jos Clemente Orozco.
