  1. I learned from this book that I continue to love Steinbeck I despise the idea that he like hemmingway for that matter is sometimes considered a simple writer Here s my opinion Using flowery prose to add weight and impart meaning on a vaporous story is not great literature A substantive story, containing meaning and moral, simply told IS great literature This is what I run into every time I read Steinbeck Hemmingway too Simple construction departing every so often to show off that yes, they know [...]


  2. Much has been said about Steinbeck s apparent portrayal of Mexican Americans as lazy, amoral drunkards in Tortilla Flat Some say Steinbeck was racist some say he was just a product of his time Which is right I do not know Steinbeck may very well have been racist he also uses jew as a slur and in several of his books uses unflattering stereotypes of Chinese people I know nothing of the man s personal beliefs about race and it is a common fallacy to suppose an author always agrees with his narrato [...]


  3. Tales of the tall variety about a silly gang of friends whose boy s club antics remind one at times of The Three Stooges or Last of the Summer Wine as they cast about in search of adventure and drink, spinning their own unbelievable yarns while getting drunk, and philosophizing with wild abandon be damned the passing of the day Hell, there s even Yogi Bear ish picnic basket pinching scene Nonsense, it s all nonsense Or is it I seem to recall something quite profound was said somewhere in there a [...]


  4. Tortilla Flat 1935 was John Steinbeck s first significant literary success both popular and critical Put simply and in Steinbeck s own words, Tortilla Flat is the story of Danny and of Danny s friends and of Danny s house his inheritance.Danny and his assorted friends are paisanos countrymen of Spanish, Indian, Mexican and Caucasian mixed heritage Danny and his band of brothers are essentially, in Steinbeck s eyes, decent people who play life very much according to their own rules This is famili [...]


  5. Briefly, Danny, the chief protagonist in this novel, returns from the war to Tortilla Flat a paisano district that sits upon a hillside above Monterey , to find he has inherited two houses What then follows is a comedic tale that fundamentally can be summed up in 5 words wine, friendship, food, women and errwine again o This is the first John Steinbeck novel I ve had the pleasure of reading, and quite simply it has left an indelible mark on me What captivates me in the first instance is the rema [...]



  6. Although it was initially rejected for publication on a number of occasions, this work a short story cycle was Steinbeck s first real critical and commercial success, He wrote it during 1933 and early 1934, when he was heavily involved in caring for his elderly parents, who were both were very ill Steinbeck was inspired to write the book by a high school teacher friend, who was partly of Mexican descent She had been studying the paisanos, poor people of mixed Mexican, Native American and Caucasi [...]


  7. This novel could easily be a set of short stories, a morality tale or immorality , a retelling of the Arthurian legends or a retelling of the gospels with a very alternative last supper Danny and his friends all paisanos spend their time looking for food, wine, shelter and women and this is pretty much all they need in life to be content Getting hold of wine is a thread through the book and its role is important sharing your wine is true friendship and there are some excellent quotes Two gallons [...]


  8. John Steinbeck has become an author whose books I can open to virtually any page and settle into a world I never want to leave Even the men I work with who find fiction theatrical and rarely read books break into a smile at the mention of Steinbeck His 1935 breakthrough Tortilla Flat was likely assigned reading in high school and it stands as a remarkable introduction to the author, with twenty seven easily digested and related stories penned with faerie tale simplicity, wit and wonder.The world [...]


  9. Eigentlich eine Trag die, die Erz hlung von Danny und seinen Freunden,aber mit viel Ironie und Zynismus macht John Steinbeck daraus eine liebens und lesenswerteGeschichte von den Bewohnern eines kleinen Hauses am Rande von Monterey, deren einzigeLebensaufgabe darin besteht, t glich etwas zu essen und ein paar Gallonen Wein zu besorgen.


  10. I loved this book I did Here s why simple, straightforward, but oh so charming storytelling No pretenses What you see, is what you get Danny Pilon Big Joe Portagee Pablo Sanchez Jesus Maria Corcoran Pirate and his dogs Some might argue that none of these are great characters You might even make the valid point that each one is a failure of sorts since between them they re barely surviving by the world s standards They live to drink and drink to live But are they happy Yes These are happy go luck [...]


  11. This is a charming and humorous tale of the adventures of a group of erstwhile paisanos in California after World War I I was confused when I started this because they were addressing each other as thee and thou , and I did not think this was a common patois of southern California at this time in history Then I read in the book description that Steinbeck had based the book on Camelot and used the structure and themes of Arthurian legends, and it made a little sense However, as I kept reading th [...]


  12. In this short novel, published in 1935, the author accomplished what he has consistently achieved, awakening emotion through lifelike characters Written during the depression, it is no wonder Steinbeck s destitute but optimistic characters appealed to the masses Their appreciation of basic needs with the occasional bottle of wine and a lusty woman thrown in struck a chord with so many experiencing similar hardships.Though criticized for a demeaning portrayal of Mexican Americans, Steinbeck s dep [...]


  13. Some things i noticed about this book 1 Allegory for King Arthur and the knights of the Roundtable2 Danny s good side represents Arthur, while his wild side represents Lancelot s later character 3 For a while i thought Danny was a figure of christ becasue of his forgiving and sacrificial nature, but his later exploits dispeled this notion 4 Torelli is definitley a symbol for Satan, the snake imagery surrounding his character is hard to miss.5 The big party for Danny the last supper 6 Danny, Pilo [...]


  14. This was a fun read I can see where some might be rubbed the wrong way by Tortilla Flat due to the political incorrectness of the time when it was written but most of the shenanigans come across to me as innocent and harmless and the main characters to me seem to be colored positively, as likable knuckleheads Oh, and one character, the Pirate, had a pack of five obedient, loyal, and lovable dogs named Enrique houndish , Pajarito brown and curly , Rudolph an American dog , Fluff a Pug , and Se or [...]


  15. Tortilla Flat is quite a number of things On the surface, it s a short novel about a group of friends with certain proclivities towards drinking wine A lot of wine On another level it s supposedly a retelling of the Knights of the Round Table, but I am not even going to front like I know enough about that to appreciate that connection at its depths On another level, suiting our economic times, it s also about rising up in social classes how difficult it is to do, what happens to us and our frien [...]


  16. I went to Monterey recently on my honeymoon, as it happens and was utterly charmed by the place A quirky and picturesque seaside town nestled on the coast of California, which manages to be touristy without being tacky, historic while still embracing the modern, and sleepy even when recognising the cosmopolitan Also, it does damn good clam chowder Having gone there and somewhat fallen in love with the place, how could I then resist the writings of its most famous son Particularly when that favou [...]


  17. Come Danny, gli amici di Danny e la casa di Danny mi intrattennero durante l estatePian della Tortilla mi lascia spiazzata ci sono cose che ho apprezzato, cose che non mi hanno colpita In generale, me lo aspettavo diverso E la prima volta che leggo Steinbeck, e di sicuro non ho iniziato dai titoloni ho iniziato dall esordio, dallo scrittore ancora acerbo, se mi devo fidare delle numerose recensioni.Questo romanzo breve un turbinio di personaggi, uno pi strambo dell altro, che si arrabattano tutt [...]


  18. Molto lontano dai drammi e dalla tensione narrativa di Furore, la storia di questi simpatici paisanos di Pian della Tortilla leggera e divertente A tratti mi ha ricordato Amici miei per gli scherzi goliardici e per l atmosfera tragicomica che investe le loro avventure Pilon, Ges Maria, il Pirata, Joe Portoghese il Grande, Pablo e il ricco Danny che li ospita nella sua casa ereditata sono un gruppo di beoni scansafatiche che ne escogitano una pi del diavolo per riuscire a mettere le mani su un fi [...]


  19. one wonders if one could do away with ambition and computers and bookface and tivo and truly be happy living day to day, sleeping in a hollow log, stealing one s dinner from pumpkin patches and bean fields, trading a day s work for a jug of cheapo wine or a roll in the hay with a whore with a heart of gold of course, had steinbeck truly lived the life of the paisanos in his novel, he never could ve written it well, possibly written never published therein lies the argument for capitalism as the [...]


  20. Tortilla Flat was Steinbeck s 1st critical and commercial success, but it hasn t aged well over the years The novel is a picaresque tale of a small group of friends who live up above Monterey in an area called Tortilla Flat The friends are rogues who don t work and survive by panhandling, occasionally stealing, and mooching off each other Whatever money they get is quickly spent on wine and women, especially on wine A gallon of wine costs 1.00 and, throughout the novel, there are multiple discus [...]


  21. Published in 1935, Tortilla Flat is one of John Steinbeck s earliest novels The story revolves around Danny who inherits two old houses in the poor hillside area of Monterey after he returns from World War I He and five paisanos live in the houses where they tell tall tales, drink wine, and chase women The paisanos have a mixture of Spanish, Indian, Mexican, and Caucasian ancestry In the preface, Steinbeck compares the adventures of Danny and the paisanos to those of King Arthur and the knights [...]


  22. Part way through Tortilla Flat, I commented to a friend that I found it odd that Steinbeck was writing about a group of homeless veterans and he never directly addresses either their war experience or the difficulty adjusting to civilian life Now that I ve finished it, don t worry, this is not a spoiler I think I was wrong Maybe when it was first published in 1935 people didn t directly address such things anyway These are WWI vets Shell Shocked was a new concept and not necessarily a commonly a [...]


  23. La ravina e il burronePi vado avanti con la lettura delle opere di Steinbeck in ordine cronologico Furore e Vicolo Cannery li avevo gi letti prima di iscrivermi al gruppo Steinbeck da leggere o rileggere e pi mi convinco che quest autore Premio Nobel, non dimentichiamolo meriterebbe maggior rispetto dalle case editrici italiane con la messa in cantiere di nuove traduzioni dall originale.Con questo non intendo affatto sminuire le traduzioni di Montale Al Dio sconosciuto e Vittorini I Pascoli del [...]


  24. This King Arthuresque novel tells the story of a group of paisanos, local countrymen of Mexican Indian Spanish Caucasian descent, living in a shabby district known as Tortilla Flat above the town of Monterey on the Californian coast The story centers on Danny, or rather, it is the story of Danny and of Danny s friends and of Danny s house It is a story of how these three become one thing when you speak of Danny s house you are to understand to mean a unit of which the parts are men, from which c [...]


  25. Tortilla Flat is a case of the meek inheriting the earth some are meek in the head, some are meek in their moral attitudes and some have other kinds of meekness Teresina was a mildly puzzled woman, as far as her mind was concerned Her body was one of those perfect retorts for the distillation of children The first baby, conceived when she was fourteen, had been a shock to her such a shock, that she delivered it in the ball park at night, wrapped it in newspaper, and left it for the night watchma [...]



  26. Comincia in modo leggero questo libro, tra persone e personaggi pieni di difetti beoni, ladri, attaccabrighe eppure molto amici, molto attenti l uno all altro, con sentimenti puri come i pensieri sotto al portico al mattino, appena svegli e a sole alto.Comincia leggero e finisce in tragedia, con la perdita di tutto ci che materiale che comprime e uccide la libert individuale di fare ci che aggrada, nel momento in cui convienee buttarsi ubriaco gi da una ravina, come una fuga, come una ribellione [...]


  27. Uno stile diverso da quello di Uomini e topi, eppure un bellissimo libro Assomiglia quasi ad una raccolta di storie sulla vita di Re Art c qualcosa di mitico e mistico nelle avventure di Danny e dei suoi amici Pilon, Pablo, Ges , Joe il Portoghese e il Pirata Libro pieno di umanit , di ironia, anche perch essere ironici ed essere umani nel migliore dei casi si equivale Affascinante la narrazione e affascinanti i luoghi, gli stessi di Zorro Monterey, la California Meraviglioso meraviglioso, picco [...]

Danny is an unemployed alcoholic, leading a transient existence in Monterrey, California When Danny inherits two houses in the shabby district of Tortilla Flat, he invites a hobo friend and fellow paisano descendant of Spanish peasants to live with him Danny s new lodger, Pilon, is a self proclaimed logician, obsessed with morality The pair are soon joined by workshy Jesus Maria, the mentally handicapped Pirate, and his pack of dogs.We follow their escapades, which entail endless wine drinking, [...]
