The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (1939)

Simply put, this is the novel that began conversation surrounding the creation of HOUSE/DIVIDED. An American classic, The Grapes of Wrath follows the Joads, a family driven away from their Oklahoma home during the Great Depression, as they set out for a better life in California. Steinbeck was awarded the National Book Award in 1939, the Pulitzer Prize in 1940 and ultimately the Nobel Prize in 1962. For a deeper understanding of HOUSE/DIVIDED, start with this primary source.

After the Music Stopped: The Financial Crisis, the Response, and the Work Ahead by Alan S. Binder (2013) 

For the most current perspective on where the financial crisis has taken the United States since its start, look no further than Alan S. Binder’s new book. Praised as “one of the best books yet about the financial crisis” by the Wall Street Journal and “highly readable” by The New York Times, Binder’s account of the crisis is both comprehensive and insightful. This book is also a great way to be informed on the many key players involved with the crisis, including many companies that are mentioned in HOUSE/DIVIDED.
