Random Book Quote*, Vol. 6

All modern American Literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. If you read it you must stop where the Nigger Jim is stolen from the boys. That is the real end. The rest is just cheating. But it's the best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing good since.
- Hemingway, Green Hills of Africa



* - Because it's easier than typing the whole thing out again
