Today, Google is celebrating John Steinbeck’s birthday with a special doodle.
Steinbeck was one of my favourite writers when I was younger. He only lived to be 66. He died of heart disease still a relatively young man, and still with much to give the world. John was reportedly a chain smoker, three packs a day minimum. Google John Steinbeck images and you will find plenty of images of him smoking.
Only 66, so many stories left to tell, snuffed out too quickly by a terrible habit.
