From the 4/20 Sunday Telegraph via the Globe and Mail:

My father was very much in his own world," says Thomas Steinbeck, the son of Nobel laureate John Steinbeck (1902-68), who is also a writer. "This was a man who named his suits. I remember there was a 'Dorian Gray' grey of course, a fawn-coloured suit that he called 'Old Yeller' and a brown one called 'Chestnut Bay.' He also named his shoes, his comb, his screwdriver. This was a man who talked to parking meters, seriously. His life was in his head."
