No thanks anyway. I love art, I love a good story, but this is not it, it is just a story.

Just Like Oklahoma! is fun, but is it the whole story? Compare that to the Grapes of Wrath. One is an Oscar the other a Nobel Peace Price for Literature. Ironic that both writers did not want the credit. In the latter the story is whiny but is a good story. Read the Octopus, A California Story by Frank Norris if you want to see where Steinbeck got his ideas from.
