Plot: East of Eden, Adam and Cathy.

East of Eden

John Steinbeck, 1952
Famous for: More riffs on the story of Cain and Abel than you ever thought possible.

The plot of East of Eden couldn’t be simpler: The story follows one man, Adam Trask, from the beginning of his life to the end of it. OK, maybe the plot is a little more complicated than that. After all, Steinbeck weaves in the story of the Hamilton family, too. And the story of Adam’s evil wife, Cathy. But in East of Eden, all roads circle back to Adam … at least once Steinbeck has all his plot threads untangled.
