Tortilla Flat - STEINBECK, JohnPenguin, 1954, Paperback ..
Above the Californian fishing-port of Monterey stands an old settlement called Tortilla Flat. It is inhabited by people whose blood is a mixture of Spanish, Mexican, Italian, and other assorted varieties - pais-anos, as they are called - and no more vivid community exists anywhere on the West Coast. Some of them work a little, in the fish-canning factories of Monterey, but one of their main activities is the cultivation of indolence in all its forms. This is the happy-go-lucky setting of John Steinbeck's diverting novel about Danny, a work-shy vagabond who sets up house in Tortilla.
