Cover for SEELYE: The True Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

The True Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

"Seelye's version seems even funnier than the original, and also more moving, since Seelye's Huck Finn is even less sentimental about life and Tom Sawyer than Twain's Huck Finn. He is also more perceptive about black people than the original."
-- Hughes Rudd, CBS News

"Seelye has stitched together a whale of a book. Without reference to Twain's own version, it is almost impossible to see the seams where 1970 joins 1884."
-- Geoffrey Wolff, Newsweek
