California writers, Jack London, John Steinbeck, The tough guys

London: The Macmillan Press Ltd, 1983. viii, 224p., first edition boards in dj; edges quite foxed, case somewhat shelfworn, jacket a little stressed along the edges --but-- according to a small rubber stamp-- this copy was sold out of "Mannfys," in Poona; it has travelled.

"California has produced two great novelists.. and one great school, that of the so-called 'tough guys'" --jacket illustration is a still from the remake of The Postman Always Rings Twice, Jack Nicholson and Jessica Lange (looking like the Joads, I guess that's comprehensive imagery).
