Book description

Go Set a Watchman is set in the mid-1950s and features many of the characters from To Kill A Mockingbird some 20 years later. Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father Atticus. She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand both her father’s attitude towards society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood.

Go Set a Watchman, was written in the mid-1950s and controversially published in July 2015 as a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, though it was later confirmed to be To Kill a Mockingbird’s first draft.

About the author

Harper Lee (April 28, 1926–February 19, 2016) is most widely known for the American classic, To Kill a Mockingbird, published in 1960. Immediately successful, it won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize. Lee was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her contribution to literature, even though at the time she had published only a single book. Lee received numerous honorary degrees, though she declined to speak on those occasions. She was also known for assisting her close friend Truman Capote in his research for the book In Cold Blood (1966). Capote was the basis for the character Dill in To Kill a Mockingbird.
