The Mockingbird Next Door : Life with Harper Lee
by Marja Mills




Overview -
New York Times Bestseller

"A winning, nuanced portrait. . . . It seems unlikely we'll ever have a better record of a remarkable American life." --USA Today

There are many reasons to be grateful for The Mockingbird Next Door....A zesty account of two women living on their own terms yet always guided by the strong moral compass instilled in them by their father.... It is also an atmospheric tale of changing small-town America; of an unlikely, intergenerational friendship between the young author and her elderly subjects; of journalistic integrity; and of grace and fortitude.... The world Mills] depicts is sadly gone, but--lucky for us--she caught it just in time.--Washington Post

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the best loved novels of the twentieth century. Yet for the last fifty years, the novel's celebrated author, Harper Lee, known to her friends as Nelle, has said almost nothing on the record. But in 2001, Nelle and her sister, Alice Finch Lee, opened their door to Chicago Tribune journalist Marja Mills. It was the beginning of a long conversation--and a wonderful friendship. Mills was given a rare opportunity to know Nelle, to be a part of the Lees' life in Alabama, and to hear them reflect on their upbringing, their corner of the Deep South, and how To Kill a Mockingbird affected their lives.
