Paul recently finished The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck and said, "I really enjoyed it—not your average upbeat novel—just right."
About the book:
Ethan Hawley, a descendant of proud New England sea captains, works as a clerk in the grocery store owned by an Italian immigrant. His wife is restless; his teenaged children are troubled and discontented, hungry for the tantalizing material comforts he cannot provide. Then one day, in a moment of moral crisis, Ethan decides to take a holiday from his own scrupulous standards.
