John Steinbeck
Steinbeck’s Son on Why His Dad Was Criticized

Thom Steinbeck, son of beloved American author John Steinbeck, discusses his father’s decreasing ability to endure all the criticism, his basic love for writing, as well as why his Nobel Peace Prize win contributed to his retirement: “He thought basically that the Nobel Prize technically ended his career ’cause he got it for a body of work, which basically means we’re retiring you. We’re kicking you upstairs. You’re a classic now. We don’t have to pay any more attention to you.”
