Jim, a runaway slave, joins Huck Finn, who is fleeing from his cruel father, and together, they journey by raft down the Mississippi River.
Introduction by George Saunders
Commentary by Thomas Perry Sergeant, Bernard DeVoto, Clifton Fadiman, T. S. Eliot, and Leo Marx
"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called "Huckleberry Finn,"" Ernest Hemingway wrote. "It's the best book we've had." A complex masterpiece that spawned controversy right from the start (it was banished from the Concord library shelves in 1885), it is at heart a compelling adventure story. Huck, in flight from his murderous father, and Jim, in flight from slavery, pilot their raft through treacherous waters, surviving a crash with a steamboat and betrayal by rogues. As Norman Mailer has said, "The mark of how good "Huckleberry Finn" has to be is that one can compare it to a number of our best modern American novels and it stands up page for page."
