Back Cover

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE 'No one ever forgets this book' Independent 'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ' em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird. ' Atticus Finch gives this advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of this classic novel - a black man charged with attacking a white girl. Through the eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Lee explores the issues of race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s with compassion and humour. She also creates one of the great heroes of literature in their father, whose lone struggle for justice pricks the conscience of a town steeped in prejudice and hypocrisy.

Author Biography

Harper Lee was born in 1926 in Monroeville, Alabama, a village that is still her home. She attended local schools and the University of Alabama. Before she started writing she lived in New York, where she worked in the reservations department of an international airline. She has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize, two honorary degrees and various other literary awards. Her chief interests apart from writing are nineteenth-century literature and eighteenth-century music, watching politicians and cats, travelling and being alone. She was friends with Truman Capote who apparently was the inspiration for the character Dill in To Kill a Mockingbird.

Review

"No one ever forgets this book" Independent "Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable" -- Truman Capote "There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written" Sunday Times
