On the Table

Jon Clinch, author of Finn, a novel that reimagined the life of Huckleberry Finn’s father, is participating in a contest that asks readers to assemble a menu based on the book. If I’m remembering Finn correctly, the only reasonable things to serve related to the novel are whiskey and hate, but the PR folks are hoping you’ll be a little more polite:

Use your imagination. Use your frying pan. Use catfish
and whiskey and fatback bacon and cornbread and sunfish and baking powder
biscuits and … well, you get the idea.
