Finn by Jon Clinch

Finn by Jon ClinchTitle: Finn

Author: Jon Clinch

Call #: CLI

Ever wonder what Huckleberry Finn’s Dad had to say for himself?  Jon Clinch did. In this dark and, at times, violent first novel, he lets Finn try to explain himself.  Although in the end, you will not sympathize with the brutal Finn, Clinch’s novel is an interesting character study of an important figure in American Literature.
