Banned Books - Grapes of Wrath


Grapes of WrathJohn Steinbeck   (1939)
The publication of this description of poor migrants trekking westwards during the Depression, was a huge event in the US, and sales were similarly huge. Briefly banned due to heavy political (and physical) pressure from right-wing farmers opposed to organized labour.
