Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
by Mark Twain
The classic boyhood adventure tale, updated with a new introduction by noted Mark Twain scholar R. Kent Rasmussen and a forward by Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran and The Republic of Imagination
In recent years, neither the persistent effort to "clean up" the racial epithets in Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn nor its consistent use in the classroom have diminished, highlighting the novel's wide-ranging influence and its continued importance in American society. An incomparable adventure story, it is a vignette of a turbulent, yet hopeful epoch in American history, defining the experiences of a nation in voices often satirical, but always authentic.
