Mark Twain

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Description

When Henry Miller was asked if there could be a sequel to Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, he replied “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” His seemingly odd response suggests the pure American-ness of Twain’s masterpiece. This is one of those books that we all supposed to read in school. But did we get it? The story of a boy floating down the Mississippi river with a runaway slave that that has become the ultimate tale of freedom. Read it again for the first time.
