In case you forgot, the title happens to be the last line of Twain's Huckleberry Finn. This is the third book by David Carkeet; it is based on the premise that Mark Twain, who first arrived in 1835 with Halley's Comet and left in 1910, came back again in 1985 when the comet made another loop past us. Needless to say, that's a bit of a stretch but it makes for great reading. Stated first edition with full number line; signed by author on title page. Blue paper binding with red cloth at spine; gold lettering on spine only. Binding tight and square with no flaws. Unclipped dust jacket has a few minor bumps. 305 pages including index. 305 pages plus index.
