Summary
This extensively revised and updated edition of the bestselling biography of Harper Lee is reframed from the perspective of the recent publication of Lee's Go Set a Watchman. 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
