Hey /lit/.
I really enjoyed this book and I was wondering if you could help me find some others like it.
This and Breakfast of Champions really strike my interest.

Train Dreams by Denis Johnson. Very charming and Steinbeck-ish.

Exactly this. I was kind of disappointed in Tortilla Flat to be honest.

Well, there's sweet thursday, cannery row, and the log of the sea of cortez. all set in the same area, by the same author, and arguably better-written. failing that "Ironweed"

Of mice and men is usually the best entry point, if not, start with the red pony.

Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday. Also by Steinbeck. Together with Tortilla Flat they are sort of a Cannery Row trilogy.
