James retells the tale of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with a twist – Jim, Huck Finn’s enslaved companion, is our protagonist. No amount of description can do this novel, or Everett’s body of work, justice. What can is reading – something described in this very book as “a completely private affair and completely free and, therefore, completely subversive.”  Welcome to the world of classic literature, Percival Everett style.
