'A GOLD MINE FOR SCHOLARS.' Deidre Carmody The New York TimesNow, 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 DealerWith a Foreword and Addendum by Victor Doyno
