Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
I enjoyed Steinbeck a lot as a teenager but haven’t read any of his books for years and years. This is short but sweet and I remember what I like so much. The language manages to be very simple but has enormous depth at the same time. The story is similar, one thing on the surface with other currents running beneath it. Each chapter is like a well crafted short story but the whole is something more.
