In Monterey, on the California coast, Sweet Thursday is the day after Lousy Wednesday, one of those days which is just bad from the start. But Sweet Thursday is sunny and clear, a day when anything can happen...Returning to the scene of Cannery Row, Steinbeck brilliantly creates its bawdy, high-spirited world of bums, drunks and hookers, telling the story of what happened to everyone after the war. There are colourful characters old and new, all united by love, laughter and tears: Fauna, the latest madam at the Bear Flag brothel, Doc, still there for everyone else but feeling strangely sad himself, and Suzy, the new hustler in town who might be just the girl to save him.
