Bill Murray Reads Huck Finn
As the video explains, the section being read was not in the novel originally, but was added in some a critical edition in the 1990s. If you're wondering why you've never heard of this, it's probably because it aired on CSPAN-2 in 1996. Murray's reading ends about 14 minutes into the video. It is followed with a panel discussion including William Styron (The Confessions of Nat Turner, Sophie's Choice), and authors Shelby Foote, Roy Blount, and Twain biographer Justin Kaplan.
