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:

        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.
