"In 1970 John Seelye took the audacious step of revising Mark Twain's masterpiece... He restored the cuss words that kids and slaves would have used then, dealt with the latent homoeroticism that Leslie Fiedler noticed in the novel, altered its almost universally deplored ending, and otherwise unsmoothed its edges. The result was a racier, more adult Huck Finn... This new edition of Seelye's version includes a P.S. by Huck himself." -- Washington Post Book World
