Remembering Steinbeck in JMWW

JMWW, the popular literary journal, published my essay, "Remembering Thomas Steinbeck." In it, I pay tribute to my mentor and friend, who was an author, and son of Nobel Laureate John Steinbeck.

"Thom grew up in the shadow of the literary great—under the care of the person I regard as my all-time favorite author: John Steinbeck. 

But Thom made clear that he didn’t feel he was in the shadows. As he described it, his father put Thom on his shoulders and gave him all the light he wanted.

Read "Remembering Steinbeck" in JMWW.
