The "lost" sequel to the American masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird ...
From the day Harper Lee's debut novel appeared in July 1960, readers have loved her writing. The detail, realism, and humor of Lee's portrait of Southern life and the book's now iconic characters and powerful story of moral awakening made To Kill a Mockingbird an instant best-seller and won Lee the Pulitzer Prize.
As the years passed, To Kill a Mockingbird became the most widely read and beloved 20th century American novel – and millions of readers hoped for another book by Harper Lee.
Fifty-five years almost to the day after the publication of her debut, Harper Lee's second novel, Go Set a Watchman, was released. A return to the characters and scene of To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman proved the most anticipated and provocative literary event of the new century.
Now, Easton Press is proud to present: Harper Lee's GO SET A WATCHMAN, an exclusive leather-bound Collector Edition.
'Scout', Atticus Finch, and Maycomb 20 years later.
'Scout' Atticus Finch, and Maycomb, 20 years later.
Two decades after witnessing her father Atticus' heroic efforts to defend an African-American man falsely accused of rape, Jean Louise 'Scout' Finch, now twenty-six years old and living in New York City, returns to her hometown of Maycomb, Alabama and finds the world of her childhood changed.
The Civil Rights movement is in full flower and African-Americans are demanding equality and challenging racist laws and institutions. Finding herself treated as an outsider by both whites and African-Americans, 'Scout' confronts the reality of the 'Southern' values which are, in fact, the values of her now elderly father.
The grown-up 'Scout' must see her father as a human being rather than idol – and prove she can be what he has always hoped for her to be: strong enough to stand up for what she believes is right.
“Harper Lee’s second novel sheds more light on our world than its predecessor did,” declares TIME Magazine, and The Atlantic agrees, saying,“The book offers what’s become increasingly difficult and necessary in the five decades since Mockingbird was published: an unflinching attempt to wrestle with racial prejudice.”
First Sentence:Since Atlanta, she had looked out the dining-car window with a delight almost physical.
