East of Eden 《伊甸之東》

Published in 1952, East of Eden is one of the best-known novels by American writer and Nobel Laureate John Steinbeck. 

Telling the tale of the Trask and the Hamilton families, the book examines the themes of justice, fate, good and evil, using the biblical story of Cain and Abel as a reference. It is believed that the Hamilton family is based on the real life of Steinbeck’s grandfather, and he himself also appears in the novel briefly. 

Steinbeck considered the novel to be his magnum opus. The film adaptation, starring the legendary actor James Dean, is also considered one of the best American films of all time.

Ralph Ellison 雷夫・艾利森

African-American author Ralph Waldo Ellison (1913-1994) is a major figure of Black American writing. He published his best-known work Invisible Man in 1952, winning the American National Book Award the following year. 

Invisible Man tells the story of an African-American man who is ignored and invisible to society, and reflects the hardship and social injustice of the black people in the United States in the early 20th century. Following his death in 1994, further works by Ellison, including Flying Home and Other Stories and Juneteeth, were discovered and published.

Erratum 勘誤表

An erratum is a slip of paper sometimes inserted into a book to inform readers of errors found and corrected after printing. Given the expense and time involved in discarding what has been printed and doing a fresh print run, a simple slip to draw attention to errors is generally preferred. The publishers can then correct the errors in subsequent editions. 

Success!
