Mockingbird : A Portrait of Harper Lee: From Scout to Go Set a Watchman
by Charles J. Shields




Overview -

An extensively revised and updated edition of the bestselling biography of Harper Lee, reframed from the perspective of the recent publication of Lee's "Go Set a Watchman"

"To Kill a Mockingbird "the twentieth century's most widely read American novel has sold thirty million copies and still sells a million yearly. In this in-depth biography, first published in 2006, Charles J. Shields brings to life the woman who gave us two of American literature's most unforgettable characters, Atticus Finch and his daughter, Scout.

Years after its initial publication with revisions throughout the book and a new epilogue Shields finishes the story of Harper Lee's life, up to its end. There's her former agent getting her to transfer the copyright for "To Kill a Mockingbird "to him, the death of Lee's dear sister Alice, a fuller portrait of Lee s editor, Tay Hohoff, and most vitally the release of Lee's long-buried first novel and the ensuing public devouring of what has truly become the book of the year, if not the decade: Lee's "Go Set a Watchman.""
