A masterpiece of Biblical scope, and the magnum opus of one of America’s most enduring authors, in a commemorative hardcover edition In his journal, Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck called East of Eden "the first book," and indeed it has the primordial power and simplicity of myth. Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families—the Trasks and the Hamiltons—whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. The masterpiece of Steinbeck’s later years, East of Eden is a work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. Adapted for the 1955 film directed by Elia Kazan introducing James Dean, and read by thousands as the book that brought Oprah’s Book Club back, East of Eden has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century.

Von der Mitte des letzten Jahrhunderts bis zum Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs reicht die Zeitspanne, die diese große amerikanische Familiensaga umfaßt. Sie erzählt die Geschichte der Trasks und der Hamiltons: die Geschichte von Charles und Adam, den ungleichen Brüdern, die um die Liebe ihres Vaters buhlen und den Reizen derselben Frau erliegen. Von eben jener Cathy, die ihren Mann und die neugeborenen Zwillinge verlässt, um sich ihren Lebensunterhalt in einem Bordell zu verdienen. Und von Aron und Caleb, ihren beiden Söhnen, deren spannungsgeladenes Verhältnis in einer moderen Version des biblischen Kainsmythos gipfelt.

From the author of Half Way Down an African Moon comes an evocative account of random journeys undertaken in Africa over the last thirty years. Written at a time when the natural world everywhere is being heedlessly plundered and exploited as never before, these recollections – impassioned, comic, ironic and critical by turn – are a reminder that in everything but multi-national corporate cupidity, the damage may well be irreparable. Whether drifting in a fishing boat among lurking pods of unpredictable hippos down the Zambezi, tracing the demise of the hapless Dodo in Mauritius, trekking for lowland gorillas in the rainforests of south-east Nigeria in the company of a wryly erudite local parks ranger, or pondering the Stone Age mind-set of wealthy trophy hunters, the author's exhilaration for wildlife and nature glows through the prism of a gradually darkening lens. The current state of our natural world may look bleak but giving up on it, as he reminds us, is not an option.
