Mark Twain

A George Saunders essay inspired me to re-read Huck Finn. I'm glad I did, because I found gems like this:

"There warn't no color in his face, where his face showed; it was white, not like another man's white, but a white to make a body sick, a white to make a body's flesh crawl - a tree toad white, a fishbelly white."
