"Audry Lynch has continued with the essential work that she began in her 1991 volume With Steinbeck in the Sea of Cortez in making a further important contribution to Steinbeck scholarship by seeking out and interviewing people who knew Steinbeck personally at various stages during his career. Her interviewees reveal unique glimpses of the man behind the artist, the true identity of some of his unforgettable characters, and his relationships with other members of his family, his friends, and his wives. There is much here that would have been lost forever if not for Dr. Lynch's prescience and perseverance."Roy Simmonds, author of John Steinbeck: The War Years, 1939-1945
"Steinbeck Remembered is a great contribution, not only for Steinbeck buffs, but also for Steinbeck scholars like myself. Lynch's interview with Horace Bristol on his deathbed is most impressive and particularly valuable." Kiyoshi Nakayama, editor of Uncollected Stories of John Steinbeck
"Audry Lynch has done readers and scholars a big favor by tracking down many of the remaining friends and acquaintances of John Steinbeck for this interesting and entertaining work of oral history. This is a great read for Steinbeck enthusiasts and for residents of 'Steinbeck Country' who want to know more about the fascinating area in which they live." Brian E. Railsback, author of Parallel Expeditions: Charles Darwin and the Art of John Steinbeck
"These are fantastic and refreshing new glimpses of John Steinbeck that are so very valuable to those of us who put that writer on the highest pedestal possible." Barnaby Conrad, author of Matador
