"With - A new Finn short story, A Q & A with the author, A new essay on the writing of Finn, Questions for book clubs."
In this masterful debut by a major new voice in fiction, Jon Clinch takes us on a journey into the history and heart of one of American literature's most brutal and mysterious figures- Huckleberry Finn's father. The result is a deeply original tour de force that springs from Twain's classic novel but takes on a fully realised life of its own. Finn sets a tragic figure loose in a landscape at once familiar and mythic. It begins and ends with a lifeless body - flayed and stripped of all identifying marks - drifting down the Mississippi. The circumstances of the murder, and the secret of the victim's identity, shape Finn's story as they will shape his life and his death. Finn is a novel about race; about paternity in its many guises; about the shame of a nation recapitulated by the shame of one absolutely unforgettable family. Above all, Finn reaches back into the darkest waters of America's past to fashion something compelling, fearless, and new.
