Two men switched at birth discover the truth about their heritage and neither will ever be the same. A novel about fate and racism, this was Twain’s late important novel. There is no character, howsoever good and fine, but it can be destroyed by ridicule, howsoever poor and witless.

Huck Finn is drawn from life; Tom Sawyer also, but not from an individual-he is a combination of the characteristics of three boys whom I knew, and therefore belongs to the composite order of architecture. The odd superstition...
