A reprise of a Dick Staub Interview with Thomas Steinbeck, son of John Steinbeck (1902-1968) who was one of the best-known and most widely read American writers of the 20th century. His son's stories bear the marks of his father's storytelling gifts. Enjoy some rare insights into storytelling. Pat Conroy observes, "Thomas Steinbeck writes with grace, authority, and passion. If John Steinbeck were my father, I would not have the courage to write a laundry list or letter to the editor. But Thomas Steinbeck inherited his father's great love of story. It is a grand thing to have a Steinbeck back in American letters."
