By Harper Lee
Pulitzer Prize-winner Harper Lee has given To Kill a Mockingbird a sequel. Although released on July 14, the piece was written in the mid 1950s and submitted to Lee’s publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. The book was believed to be lost, but found again in 2014 and edited.
Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch (Scout) learns a disturbing truth about her relatives and home town in a visit from New York to Maycom (Alabama), 20 years after the events occurred in To Kill a Mockingbird.
The book tackles personal, political and cultural issues set in the turbulent years of the 50s in America, with characters that have grown, evolved and developed but keep the essence of their younger years.
