So much has been written about Twain's masterpiece, often cited as the greatest of all American novels. But never forget how bloody hilarious it is. As Huck and Jim make their way down the Mississippi, getting into mischief and mayhem, they not only paved the way for American literature but for all the tricksters that have animated the American imagination. Read it again and think of Bugs Bunny or Bart Simpson.
