I finished The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck recently and added it to Tier 2 of my Best Novels list, “Incredible Masterpieces”.
Like always, Steinbeck has crafted incredible characters and woven a story around them that makes their character exploration incredibly natural. He is the absolute epitomy of “show, don’t tell”.
That puts three Steinbeck novels in my first two tiers.
Man do I love Steinbeck.
