Lawrence Lessig - "a brilliant agile mind - absolutely extraordinarily prolific writer and speaker and above all an advocate for all the right things"
"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of a thinking power called an idea ... no one possesses the less of it because every other possesses the whole of it ... as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening mine" -- Thomas Jefferson

Set in the mid 1800s before the Civil War, Huckleberry Finn and Jim, a runaway slave, drift on their raft down the Mississippi River. As they journey, adventure beckons bringing them closer whilst exposing entrenched values and attitudes as large blemishes on the Southern landscape. Controversial when first published. Paradigm shifting. Regarded as a masterpiece of American Literature. Listed as No.5 by Time magazine in its list of "10 Greatest Books of All Time", January 2007.
In this comic novel, Mr. Polly is a timid man who prefers reading books of adventure rather than working in a draper's shop. A life with little money and a spiteful wife is one of woe. A disenchanted Mr.Polly plans to burn down his shop and kill himself. His plan fails and a turn of events leads him to a genuinely brighter future, especially after a dead man has been mistakenly identified as Mr.Polly.
