Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Norton Critical Edition by Mark Twain; Thomas Cooley (Editor)
Publication Date: 1998-12-17
Huck is a young, naive white boy fleeing from his drunken, dangerous Pa; and Jim is a runaway slave longing to be reunited with his family. Flung together by circumstance, they journey down the Mississippi together on a log raft, each in search of his own definition of freedom. Their daring adventures along the way provide both entertainment and a satirical look at the moral values of the Deep South of the 1800s. This Norton Critical Edition includes annotations, documents, information about the author, and critical excerpts.
Ishmael Chambers, a newspaperman from the Pacific Northwest who lost an arm in World War II, reunites with his childhood sweetheart, Hatsue Imada, whom he was separated from by the Japanese-American internment, when Imada's husband is tried for murder.
In a society dominated by 'the feed' - a next-generation Internet/television hybrid that is directly hardwired into the brain - a teenage boy named Titus tells the story of a spring break vacation to the moon disrupted by a hacker and a beautiful, intelligent girl who decides to fight her implant's messages.
