Radio personality and best-selling author Garrison Keillor lends his considerable charm, enthusiasm and taste to this superb reading and abridgment of Mark Twain’s classic. His cutting makes no concessions to the Comstockery that has made HUCKLEBERRY FINN an object of heated debate. Instead, he gives us a “good parts” version, his personal pick of choice passages, edited with sensitivity to narrative flow, style and theme. The same literary tact plays in his voice, along with love and a child-like ingenuousness. This pristine recording is an excellent introduction to Keillor, as well as to Sam Clemens, two of America’s most engaging heartland storytellers. Y.R.
