I know what I’ll be reading in July: Go Set a Watchman, the old new novel from Harper Lee.
"Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father, Atticus," the publisher’s announcement reads. "She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand her father’s attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood."
This is not a ghost-written attempt to cash in, it seems. This was Lee’s first novel, that inspired To Kill a Mockingbird but was unpublished, and has recently been rediscovered. It could be an awful first effort, or it could be a real jewel.
It still doesn’t answer the question of why such a talented writer just stopped with her first grand success.
