Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Mass Market Paperbound)
Ballantine Books, 9780804115711, 384pp.
Publication Date: January 29, 1997
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.
