Part mystery, part bildungsroman, part love story, Pearson’s novel will captivate Twain fans and all readers in search of adventure.

"Pearson is at his best when evoking the desperation and longing of teenage love, and this appealing blend of road novel, historical novel, and coming-of-age tale makes a nice addition to the many books that wrestle with the ghost of Mark Twain."—Booklist

"Of the numerous writings on the life and career of Mark Twain, Pearson’s enjoyable debut is one with a refreshingly unique viewpoint. Bringing to life both his young hero and the historical figures in the book with equal skill, Pearson has created a memorable modern-day story with evocative echoes of the past."—Book Page

"Michael Pearson roams back and forth between fact and fantasy, city and country, the troubled 1960s and the days of Mark Twain in this intricate adventure of a youth in confrontation with society and self."—Louis D. Rubin Jr., author of The Edge of the Swamp: A Study in the Literature and Society of the Old South
