We gave it a B

Ben, a marine biologist, reconnects with his estranged teenage daughter while forming a life-changing bond with Hudson, a young John Steinbeck scholar.

Vérité Moment?
Hudson studies a (fictional) lost Steinbeck manuscript that suggests the author and his pal Ed Ricketts (also a marine biologist) were lovers.

Lowdown
Michael Thomas Ford’s Changing Tides‘ is an unusually literate beach read that only loosely connects its characters to speculation about Steinbeck’s sexuality. B
