|Plot Summary of Cannery Row|
|" The book is set on a street in Monterey, California called Cannery Row. It's a fairly poor district. Mack is a poor but kind-hearted character who lives with some of his friends in an abandoned warehouse. He and his friends want to do something nice for Doc, a marine biologist who everybody likes. However, when they do this, it usually ends up going wrong. The novel concentrates more on a wide assortment of characters rather than the plot."
