    MOBI ☆ DOC Sweet Thursday Paperback ¶ JOHN STEINBECK Sweet ThursdayThe War is over and life seems to go back to normal in Cannery Row Mack and the boys return to their feisty drinking at the Palace Flophouse and Fauna and the girls recover their usual business at the Bear Flag Companionship and good cheer camaraderie and the right dose of picaresue reign over the marginalized neighborhood in Monterey and the familiar pulse of tragicomedy takes hold of the comforted readerThere is only a discordant note in Steinbeck’s symphony that dulls the otherwise colorful picture old Doc has come back home from the front a changed man; his boundless love for the sea its marine creatures and even the appeasing voices of Gregorian chants have lost their allure Doc has run out of the selfless love that kept all the community tied up together and an impending sense of dread has darkened the mood of the whole neighborhoodTrying to reconnect with his former self and screaming out in stifling l
