Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A GOLD MINE FOR SCHOLARS."

*Deidre Carmody

The New York Times

Now, in this extraordinary literary uncovering, the original first half of Mark Twain's American masterpiece is available for the first time ever to a general readership. Lost for more than a century, the passages reinstated in this edition reveal a novel even more controversial than the version Twain published in 1885 and provide an invaluable insight into his creative process. A breakthrough of unparalleled impact, this comprehensive edition of an American classic is the final rebuttal in the tireless debate of "what Twain really meant."

"[A] MASTERLY RESTORATION . . . I wish this new version of Huckleberry Finn would be distributed to all the nation's classrooms as the basic text and lead to a badly needed reconsideration of the questions it raises."

*James A. McPherson

Chicago Tribune

"THOUGHTFULLY RESPECTS TWAIN'S INTENTIONS."

*Gary Lee Stonum

The Cleveland Plain Dealer

With a Foreword and Addendum by Victor Doyno
