'No one ever forgets this book'

A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl in the Deep South of the thirties.

About the Author

Harper Lee was born in 1926 in Monroeville, Alabama, a village that is still her home. She attended local schools and the University of Alabama. Before she started writing she lived in New York, where she worked in the reservations department of an international airline. She has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize, two honorary degrees and various other literary awards. Her chief interests apart from writing are nineteenth- century literature and eighteenth- century music, watching politicians and cats, travelling and being alone.

            Comments about To Kill A Mockingbird:

            this is one of those books that benefitted
            from a film adaptation starring gregory peck,
            some years ago now, not sure when it was made.
            racism is still rife, but with books like this,
            remnding us of our similarities instead of differences, hopefully a better understanding of
            every persons right to be treated equally will
            benefit us all.
