More information about Final Jeopardy:
John Steinbeck’s 1952 novel East of Eden deals with two families: the Trask and Hamilton clans and was originally written because Steinbeck wanted to describe California’s Salinas Valley in detail (for his two children).
It is also an analogue to the Cain and Abel story from the Book of Genesis; in East of Eden, it was indirect: when Cal revealed to his brother Aron that their mother was a prostitute, Aron was so devastated that he enlisted in World War I (where he died).
