Summary, etc.: An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To kill a mockingbird. Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go set a watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To kill a mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014. Go set a watchman features many of the characters from To kill a mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch--Scout--struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her. Exploring how the characters from To kill a mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go set a watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee's enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.
