I can't think of another book I'd rather read. Out this summer!

I just came here to start this very thread grin. How exciting!

Can't wait smile I shall have to have a re-read of To Kill A Mockingbird this year in advance of this.

And from an adult Scout's point of view. grin

July 14!

I am so excited I've just started a thread in AIBU! I never start threads.

I can't believe the book has been in existence all this time and not published before!

I'm looking forward to this

Hmm, this article makes it all seem a bit dodgy though sad

Reading TKAM for the first time at the moment, so this is very timely, I am absolutely adoring it!

I can't wait �� I have read to kill a mockingbird at least 20 times

Can but hope she has got some reliable advisors helping her. I'd hate to think she was vulnerable and had been talked into publishing it if she hadn't wanted to.

I seem to remember years ago she said she had a second novel in the pipeline, but hadn't completed it. Maybe this is it? Trying to think positively about it now smile

This article is also worth a read. I read the biography in question this past summer (worth a read if you haven't); it's an interesting look at the Lee sisters.

I coudn't get on with TKAMN. I found it dry. I have tried to read again, but no..not for me. Sort of flat and grey and below. I can't describe.
We don't have to like the same books.
Sales would be very poor.

Lemon, I've just read that, thank you. What an absolute shithead that agent Samuel Pinkus sounds angry.

There has been mutterings for quite a while about odd legal issues were happening around Harper Lee with it being said se was being exploited.
I think I first read them when there was talk about a 'friend' writing a book about her and it was implied Harper Lee approved of it when she didn't and the writers connection to her was tenuous at best.

I thought this was her first novel and she was encouraged to give a fuller account of Scout's childhood because those were the parts whoever read it liked best.
