Tortilla Flat - John Steinbeck

From the back page...


"Steinbeck's first major critical and commercial success, Tortilla Flat is also his funniest novel"


Yeah, is that in the same way Far From the Madding Crowd is Hardy's funniest novel because it's not quite as depressing as all his others?


(Seriously though, I think I'm going to enjoy this one).
