    I'm glad she was around to see the success of 'Go Set a Watchman'.

    Very sad news, RIP.

    I already deleted that thread, so I moved this one here. The next time, instead of starting a new thread, let one of us know and we will move it to the right section.

    I thought it was cool that she was friends with Truman Capote. 'To Kill a Mockingbird' is one of my all time favorite books. RIP!

    Me too. It was Mockingbird and Macbeth that let me pass my Standard Grade in English so it's always been a favorite of mine.

    "Mockingbird" was a brave look at who Americans are or could be. I loved the novel, while the film was wonderful, but not to the novel. I think Harper Lee was merely happy to have told the story that she lived. It's a perfect book.

    That it is, and it is being banned again ... ridiculous ! http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/...strict-w509085
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    "To Kill A Mockingbird" may be the greatest American novel.

    One thing for sure: she was able to coast her entire career on the strength of that book. Much like J.D. Salinger with Catcher In The Rye. It's like they both had one book in them and nothing else to say after that. Either that or terminal writer's block.
