Of Mice and Men

Candy longs for friendship/companionship. How does this reflect the era in which the book is based in?

How does Steinbeck demonstrate how harsh and unforgiving the Great Depression was using this character's lack of relationships?

Like all of the characters in this book, the depression forces them to find work where they can. Candy must work at this ranch where men come and go. He remains alone with his dog, unable to move or find a place where he belongs.
