Returning to the scene of Cannery Row-the weedy lot and junk heaps and flophouses of Monterey, California-Steinbeck once more brings to life the denizens of a netherworld of laughter and tears, from Fauna, new headmistress of the local brothel, to Hazel, a bum whose mother must have wanted a daughter.

In Sweet Thursday, Steinbeck returns to the characters and setting of his earlier novel Cannery Row. Some of the Row's characters have moved on and others have moved in. Of Steinbeck's three more comedic Monterrey novels, this was the strongest, the one that feels most like a complete novel.
