Steinbeck in the news; or at least, his summer home is…

Have you seen the article in today’s New York Times about the legal battle over control of John Steinbeck’s Long Island summer home? The Sag Harbor, NY, home was left to John Steinbeck’s sister-in-law by his widow; his oldest son and granddaughter believe the Steinbeck family should have it.

Some of the photos accomanying the article are fascinating, like the one showing where Steinbeck marked guests’ heights on the kitchen wall.

If you’re interested, you can also read his essay “Conversation at Sag Harbor” online.
