Description

Unburdened by the material necessities of the more fortunate, the denizens of Cannery Row discover rewards unknown in more traditional society. Henry the painter sorts through junk lots for pieces of wood to incorporate into the boat he is building, while the girls from Dora Flood's bordello venture out now and then to enjoy a bit of sunshine. Lee Chong stocks his grocery with almost anything a man could want, and Doc, a young marine biologist who ministers to sick puppies and unhappy souls, unexpectedly finds true love. Cannery Row is just a few blocks long, but the story it harbors is suffused with warmth, understanding, and a great fund of human values.

Cannery Row
fullDescription

Unburdened by the material necessities of the more fortunate, the denizens of Cannery Row discover rewards unknown in more traditional society. Henry the painter sorts through junk lots for pieces of wood to incorporate into the boat he is building, while the girls from Dora Flood's bordello venture out now and then to enjoy a bit of sunshine. Lee Chong stocks his grocery with almost anything a man could want, and Doc, a young marine biologist who ministers to sick puppies and unhappy souls, unexpectedly finds true love. Cannery Row is just a few blocks long, but the story it harbors is suffused with warmth, understanding, and a great fund of human values.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Steinbeck's tales of 1930s Monterey are as haunting as the fog that frequently rolls in off the California coast. Jerry Farden's quiet, sensuous voice delivers the details of this beautiful coastal town and the lives of the ordinary men who work the canneries and the women who work the streets. The words seem to float from Farden's mouth as they weave a spell of times gone by. Farden's easy narration is a good match for the simple language and low-key characters of these stories from an American master. The listener is enthralled by the magic of Cannery Row and the stories that grew from that magical place. M.B.K. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
