Overview
Read Kerry Madden's posts on the Penguin Blog.
Nelle Harper Lee sTo Kill a Mockingbirdwas published in 1960 and became an instant bestseller. Two years later it was an Academy Award winning film. Today, it remains standard and beloved reading in English classes. But Lee never wanted the book to define who she was, which explains her aversion to any kind of publicity. Kerry Madden conducted extensive research for this Up Close biography, which reveals Lee to be a down-to-earth Southern woman who prefers to live simply, like her neighbors do, despite the fact that she is a treasured literary legend. Madden s in-depth biography is now more relevant than ever: 2015 s historic release of Go Set a Watchman written by Lee before To Kill a Mockingbird and lost for decades has thrust Lee and her work back into the spotlight.
