RIP Harper Lee

The author of To Kill a Mockingbird has passed away at age 89.  She gave us Atticus Finch, a sequel that came out last year, and she was Truman Capote’s homie.

What say you, 3.5 readers?

    What came out last year wasn’t a sequel, but an early first draft of “Mockingbird.” It was originally rejected, perhaps deservedly so. I haven’t read “To Set a Watchman,” but some critics think its publication was a mistake that only served to muddy Lee’s legacy. She really wasn’t in any shape to approve its release, if she was even aware of it.

    • They probably could have made everyone happy by releasing it with a note that this is Lee’s original draft if you’d like to check it out for historical purposes but know she didn’t intend this to be the story.
