When I told people about The Northeast Quarter, one of the responses was “Oh. It’s set during The Great Depression. Like Grapes Of Wrath.” Actually, it takes place ten years before – between 1918 and 1929. A closer approximation of the time period would be found in Splendor In The Grass – as America slides from a post-war boom into financial breakdown.
