Editorial Reviews

Review


"Phong Nguyen takes on American history and literature in this captivating novel. Writing about a marginal character in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, he illuminates the marginal characters of American culture in the 19th century. The imaginative return of an adult Tom Sawyer is alone worth the price of this book." - Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize

“funny, smart, and full of surprises” – Christine Sneed, author of Paris, He Said

“mordant, hilarious and eminently readable” – Zachary Mason, author of The Lost Books of the Odyssey

"Nguyen’s addition to Twain’s classic does not disappoint. Stylistically, Nguyen’s ability to capture the vernacular of 1870s Missourian hobo life is one of the marvels of this piece of fiction." – Historical Novel Society
