Harper Lee is gonna be releasing simultaniously in the US and UK THIS July the official sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird. Called Go Set A Watchman, it deals with a now grown up Scout looking back at her childhood. Harper had reportadly written the book before she published To Kill and sat unpublished for the last 50+ years.

Dude. This is gonna be like THE book of the year! :o

She probably wants to publish it before she kicks the bucket.

That's awesome. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird, so I'll gladly read the sequel and maybe pick up a copy of the first book since I don't own it.

From what I've been hearing this appears to be more like a cash grab on the part of her Lawyer than anything.

Also that the book itself was the inspiration of "Mockingbird" in that the publisher looked at the manuscript and said: the flashbacks are the best part of this, you should flesh those out more.

I just hope Lee comes out okay on the otherside of this.
