October Books 24) The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck

The gut-wrenching story of agricultural and economic disaster in the late 1930s, and how vulnerable people get exploited both in general and in particular. A tough read in places; the imagery of the final scene particularly lingers. Deservedly won a Pulitzer Prize in its day and helped to secure Steinbeck's Nobel.
