We've got a day to go and there are a lot of nominations still in hand, in case anyone has had a last minute light bulb moment about the perfect book.

Even though it's late, I've decided to go ahead and nominate John Steinbeck's In Dubious Battle (1936, 302 pp.).

Quote
At once a relentlessly fast-paced, admirably observed novel of social unrest and the story of a young man's struggle for identity, In Dubious Battle is set in the California apple country, where a strike by migrant workers against rapacious landowners spirals out of control, as a principled defiance metamorphoses into blind fanaticism. Caught in the upheaval is Jim Nolan, a once aimless man who find himself in the course of the strike, briefly becomes its leader, and is ultimately crushed in its service.
Amazon U.S., $12.99

Both e-book and audiobook are in Overdrive and available in all relevant countries. There's also a copy of the e-book at the Internet Archive.

Well it could have been "Dear Text" - in either expensive or cherished sense, both would work for various paper books I have here.

Good one! I’ve got too many of both sorts myself.
