Author Biography

The author of this book is John Stienbeck. He is very talented and he published many book copies. I honestly think he wrote this book , because when he was a little boy he lived on a farm with his family and he had to work on the farm after his dad lost his job. This job inspired him to write this book Of Mice & Men so he could retell his life so others can know how his life was . In 1940 Stinebeck won a Nobel prize in Literature in 1962. In 1986 he died at the age of 66 , even though he did his books are still popular.


The theme of the whole book would have to be that it teaches a grim lesson about the nature of human existence. Most of the character in this story have admitted at one time or another , to having a profound sense loneliness and isolation They all will settle the attentive ear the comfort of a friend but will settle for the attentive ear of a stranger.


"Because .... because i got you to look after me , and you got me to look after you , and thats why (John Steinbeck)
