In Dubious Battle is a 1936 novel by John Steinbeck. The central figure of the story is an activist for “the Party” (thought to be the communist party, though it is never specifically named in the novel) who is organizing a major strike by fruit pickers and looking to get more people involved in his cause. The book focuses on a fight between labor and capital in 1930’s California, a fictional area of California. “In Dubious Battle” explores themes that Steinbeck explored in future work as well, group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man. Franco will play Jim Nolan, a man who gets involved in the movement and its organization.
