The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960.

It went on to win the Pulitzer prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behaviour-to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humour and pathos.

Now with over 15 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story.

Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

    Comments about To Kill a Mockingbird:

    I bought this book for my 14 year old grandson, as a tool to understand racism and so being able to recognize it and avoid it. It is also an historical account and the child perspective is so fresh.

        Comments about To Kill a Mockingbird:

        The message that the story gives is still as relevant now as it was when I read it 35 years ago. As a teenager I was enraged by the injustices it illustrated and have purchased this copy for my daughters to read. A book that is hard to put down and one that does not have the often pleasant "happy ever after" ending for some of the characters.
