  • Tortilla Flat


    Tortilla Flat follows a group of aimless, jobless friends in Monterey, California, just after World War I. Danny, who has inherited two houses from his grandfather, spends his days drinking and giving things away to his friends, who never pay him back. The story contains many overt parallels to the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, and is primarily concerned with the bond formed within the group of loyal friends.
