Description

Nostalgic and melancholy in equal measure, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is a razor-sharp satire of the antebellum South that, despite beginning life as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, is now seen in its own right as one of the most important of all American novels.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn features an afterword by playwright and screenwriter Peter Harness.

Rather than be ‘sivilized’ by the Widow Douglas, Huckleberry Finn – the grubby but good-natured son of a local drunk – sets off with Jim, an escaped slave, to find freedom on the Mississippi river. With the law on their tail, they navigate a world of robbers, slave hunters and con men, and Huck must choose between what society says is ‘right’ and his own burgeoning understanding of Jim’s friendship and humanity.
