'In the town they tell the story of the great pearl - how it was found and how it was lost again. They tell of Kino, the fisherman, and of his wife, Juana, and of the baby, Coyotito. And because the story has been told so often, it has taken root in every man's mind.'

Rezensionen
Steinbeck at the top of his form New York Times
[The Pearl] has the distinction and sincerity that are evident in everything he writes. —The New Yorker

Form is the most important thing about him. It is at its best in this work. —Commonweal

[Steinbeck has] long trained his prose style for such a task as this: that supple unstrained, muscular power, responsive to the slightest pull of the reins. —Chicago Sunday Times
