Robert Coover is the author of Huck Out West, among many other works of fiction. He is a pioneer in the field of electronic writing, and founded the International Writers Project, a freedom-to-write program, at Brown University. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
"... in Huck Out West, Robert Coover,... one of the first generation of postmodern writers, provides an audacious and revisionary sequel to Twain's masterpiece. It is both true to the spirit of Twain and quintessentially Cooveresque, part homage, part detournement." -- Times Literary Supplement
