This was my first episode. Loved it. As luck might have it, I was at the Steinbeck Museum in Salinas, California, many years ago. My father arranged a meeting with the curator. During the visit, he showed me the very manuscript that fell behind the bureau, which Steinbeck believed lost and subsequently rewrote verbatim, minus a dozen or so words that he changed in the second draft. As a young writer, it left an impression. Cheers!
