One hundred and twenty years ago, Mark Twain left Huckleberry Finn's father dead in a room crowded with oddities: a wooden leg, women's underclothing, two black cloth masks, and more. Now, in a resonant and remarkable new novel, Jon Clinch tells the story of how the brutal and explosive Finn met his end in a room jammed with the telltale artifacts of his strange and mysterious life.

Along the way, Clinch introduces the listener to a mesmerizing cast of characters: Finn's own fearsome father, known only as the Judge; Finn's brother, the sickly, sycophantic Will; the hermit Bliss, a blind moonshiner; the strong and quick-witted Mary, a former slave who becomes Finn's mistress; and, of course, young Huck himself.

Finn is a novel about race, the sin of slavery, and the burdens of paternity. Written in a style both precise and thunderous, understated and violently elemental, it draws from our literary heritage to create something new. Finn is a hypnotic, completely original, distinctive American story.

    " Excellent writer. If you like fiction that imagines "lesser" characters in well-knows classics, you'll like this. It's the story of Huck Finn's father. "

    " This is just the darkest novel I have ever read- it stayed with me for days after I finished it. Huck Finn's father is imagined as the main character in a stark commentary on human nature and the essence of evil. The elder Finn is at turns evil by action, or evil by what he'll let happen around him. "What could possibly be going through the mind of a monster like this man," is a question that is answered in such shocking simplicity that it takes your breath away. I highly recommend this book. "

    " This book was such an interesting take on Mark Twain's famous novel. I enjoyed the writing and the clever plot and I would recommend it to fans of the story of Huck Finn. This novel is meant for adult readers. "
