Tortilla Flat (1935) is an early John Steinbeck novel set in Monterey, California. The novel was the author’s first clear critical and commercial success.

The book portrays a group of paisanos—literally, countrymen—a small band of errant friends enjoying life and wine in the days after the end of the Great War.

Tortilla Flat was made into a film in 1942. Steinbeck would later return to some of the panhandling locals of Monterey (though not the Spanish paisanos of the Flat) in his novel Cannery Row (1945).
