Catch it now, before this article becomes accessible only through the Chicago Tribune paid archives:

Art Winslow has reviewed “Finn” by Jon Clinch, a prequel to Huck Finn that Winslow dubs “loosely a detective novel.” Though he admits that “Clinch is a talented writer who crafts many gripping scenes,” he also warns that “Clinch never the Twain shall meet.”

It doesn’t seem likely that Clinch’s work is as enjoyable as Winslow’s. Then again, I haven’t read the book, and as I always say, a reviewer’s opinion is just one opinion.
