With graceful pacing and grandfatherly tenderness John McDonough reads Steinbeck's tribute to the simple paisanos of TORTILLA FLAT. One imagines it a tenderness born of understanding. His voice breaks at the pain, shakes at the outrage, and smiles at the gentle mercies the paisanos render one another. TORTILLA FLAT, however, is no Camelot, as some critics have said. Danny and his friends are not Arthur and his knights, but their return from the war as heroes of a sort, Danny's inheritance of a house and the adventures they pursue are brightened by the quiet magic of McDonough's reading.
