Go Set a Watchman Harper Lee's sensational lost novel

Written by Harper Lee

Go Set a Watchman Harper Lee's sensational lost novel Synopsis

Go Set a Watchman is set during the mid-1950s and features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father Atticus. She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand both her father's attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood.

Go Set a Watchman Harper Lee's sensational lost novel Press Reviews

The caveats surrounding this companion volume to To Kill a Mockingbird melt away as you read the opening chapters and reacquaint yourself with Lee's beguiling narrative style - warm, sardonic, wryly funny, a sassy Southern voice...Go Set a Watchman zips along. * Sunday Times * It ignited a fascinating debate on the place and portrayal of racism in both books, as well as about the magic and hard graft of novel writing. -- Justine Jordan * Guardian * Equally significant today, and imbued with Lee's wisdom, humanity and humour. -- Justine East * Independent *
