Reviews

  • "Harper Lee announced she would be releasing a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird this summer – 55 years after her debut. Go Set a Watchman, completed in the mid-50s but lost for more than half a century, was written before To Kill A Mockingbird and features Scout as an adult"

    Guardian
  • "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
  • "A hundred pounds of sermons on tolerance, or an equal measure of invective deploring the lack of it, will weigh far less in the scale of enlightenment than a mere eighteen ounces of new fiction bearing the title To Kill a Mockingbird"

    The Washington Post, 1961
